Award-winning author/illustrator Jason Chin was our guest on Thursday, January 13, 2011.

His book Redwoods, an ALA notable book, was presented the Los Angeles Public Library Focal Award on Saturday January 15, an event for which Several Palms art students created the centerpieces.

The annual Focal Award is given to a children's book, grades 3-8, with California content.

Mr. Chin met with several of our classes in the Library. He read, answered questions about redwood trees, presented artwork, and talked about the illustration process. Some parents attended too.
