Children’s Laureate Anthony Browne is giving a talk about his life, work and approach to illustrated children's books in London next week.
Anthony is the creator of classic picture books including Voices in the Park, Gorilla and the Willy series. Famed for artwork packed with details for viewers to discover, Anthony has won the Kate Greenaway Medal twice, the Kurt Maschler ’Emil‘ Award three times, and in 2000 became the first British illustrator to win the Hans Christian Andersen Award. In 2009, Browne was appointed the UK Children’s Laureate for 2009, a role he will hold until later this year.
At the Old Cinema in the University of Westminster on Monday March 21, Anthony present an overview of his life and work. He will be joined by his son Joe and will be signing books including his biography Playing the Shape Game after the event.
The event is run by the AOI (Association of Illustrators) in partnership with Random House. Tickets cost £15, or £10 to AOI members. To buy tickets, visit theaoi.com/events.
