from Wonderstruck, his new novel for young adults.
The story, told alternately in words and picture, is about two 12-year-old runaways, a girl in 1927, and a boy in 1977, whose stories intersect at the American Museum of Natural History. They have one thing in common: she is deaf, and he loses his hearing when he is struck by lightning. Selznick will sign books after the talk.
