Good news for MLK DAY TOMORROW!

Do you want the first piece of good news, or the second piece of good news?

1. The fabulous show at the Washington State History Museum in Tacoma, featuring many of our SCBWI illustrators, will now be extended through Friday, January 23, 2015!

2. There will be a special event this MONDAY, January 19 at 2pm in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Sundee Frazier, Richard Jesse Watson, Jesse Watson, Lois Brandt, and Laurie Thompson, along with Dr. Belinda Louie and librarian Katie Monks from University of Washington Tacoma. The topic is "Diversity and Changemaking in Children's Literature."

There will also be a Community Pledge Wall, where people can post pictures of what they believe community to be, and post pledges to be "drum majors for change," re: the MLK quote we used along with a portrait of MLK by Jesse Watson. Richard Jesse Watson also supplied an illustration "Children of the World" to help promote the event.

The panel discussion starts at 2pm, with a special book table of topic-related children's books from the extensive collection held at UWA-Tacoma available for viewing before and after. The museum is open until 5pm with the SCBWI illustrators' exhibit on view through Friday, January 23 in our Community Gallery.
