What keeps objects from floating out of your hand? What if your feet drifted away from the ground? What stops everything from floating into space? Gravity. Join us for the book launch event for Gravity! Jason Chin - who both authored and illustrated this book - will present an interactive drawing demo, live and in person. All ages welcome.
As in his previous books, Redwoods, Coral Reefs, and Island, Jason Chin has taken a complex subject and made it brilliantly accessible to young readers in this unusual, innovative, and very beautiful book.
Jason Chin is the author of the award-winning Redwoods, Coral Reefs, which was nominated for a Texas Bluebonnet Award, and most recently, Island, which received five starred reviews and is a School Library Journal Best Book of the Year. Jason lives with his wife, Deirdre Gill, also an artist, and their son in Vermont.

Thursday, September 13, 6PM: Erin & Phillip C. Stead + Jason Chin!
Everyone has a story to tell here at Wild Rumpus. Ida B. the cat likes to recall stories about all the bears she's met, Spike the Wise Lizard tells about the wonders of the Sahara, and Ethel the chicken goes on and on about her days in the circus which are a lot longer and drier than you'd think.
If you like stories about bears or the Galápagos but not so much about circuses, then come to Wild Rumpus Thursday September 13th at 6pm for an event like no other. Author illustrator duo Philip C. Stead and Erin E. Stead will be here to share their new book Bear Has a Story to Tell. The Steads are creators of A Sick Day for Amos McGee, winner of the Caldecott Medal.
