Grace the Giraffe in Paris (ages 3–10)

Sat 10 December 2022 @ 11 h 00 - 12 h 00

Join the creators of Grace the Giraffe in Paris for a reading and art demonstration!

3–10 year-olds and their grown-ups are invited to join us for a special event with author Oliver Gee and illustrator Lina Nordin Gee as they read their new picture book Grace the Giraffe in Paris. Following the reading, Lina will show participants how to draw a giraffe and then the pair will answer questions about what inspired this fantastical tale, and they’ll share the fun facts they discovered as they created the story.

This live, interactive event will be hosted in the Children’s Library—Early. Library programs are created to encourage children to actively engage with stories. Books will be available for purchase at the event. 

About Oliver Gee and Lina Nordin Gee: Together, Oliver Gee and Lina Nordin Gee created Kylie the Crocodile in Paris, Roger the Liger in Paris, and Grace the Giraffe in Paris. Oliver Gee is the creator of the award-winning podcast about Paris and France, The Earful Tower. He used to be a full-time journalist in Paris, but switched to podcasting in December 2017. Lina Nordin Gee runs a chic shoe and handbag company, Deuxième Studios, and likes to draw and paint. You can see her illustrations on Instagram @ParisianPostcards.
