Oliver Gee and Lina Nordin Gee reading “Roger the Liger in Paris” (ages 3–9)

December 4 @ 11 h 00 min - 12 h 00 min

For ages 3–9


3–9 year-olds and their grown-ups are invited to join us for a reading with author Oliver Gee and illustrator Lina Nordin Gee as they read their new picture book Roger the Liger in Paris. Following the reading, Lina will show participants how to draw a liger (a combination of a tiger and a lion!) and then the pair will answer questions about what inspired this fantastical tale.

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. Children and adults will be invited to ask questions during the Q&A portion of the event. Books will be available for purchase at the event.
