Coming Up: Author Talk - Brian Selznick

If you have a tween kid who likes Brian Selznick books, you'll be interested in this. Brian Selznick, Caldecott Medal winner and author of The Houdini Box, The Invention of Hugo Cabret and more, makes his only San Francisco appearance at the Contemporary Jewish Museum. Selznick will read and show illustrations
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.

When: Sunday, October 23rd from 3-5 p.m.

Where: Contemporary Jewish Museum, 736 Mission Street (between Third and Fourth streets)
RSVP: Recommended - or online or call (415) 655-7800
Cost: free for members and youth 18 and under, $12 general admission otherwise, $10 for seniors and students over 18 with valid ID
