50 Books: An Evening with Caldecott Medal Winner Kevin Henkes is a celebration of his amazing contribution to children's literature in conjunction of the release of his 50th book, Egg!
Egg is a picture book for preschoolers about four eggs, one big surprise and an unlikely friendship. With its simple text and soft color palette, it's sure to be a another classic read-aloud from the incredible talent that brought such beloved bestsellers like Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse, Waiting, and Kitten's First Full Moon.
The presentation will include a reading and a Q&A with Kevin Henkes. For more information about this free event at the Hollywood Library- including acquiring tickets, visit Multnomah County Library's event page.

Caldecott-winner Erin E. Stead will share her newest picture book, Tony, a poem by Ed Galing, at Green Bean Books on Sunday, February 12, at 11 am.
Tony is Ed Galing's poem about the bond shared between a horse and a young boy. Erin Stead manages to capture this remarkable connection with her tender illustrations.
She will be joined by her husband, Philip C. Stead, who wrote the Caldecott Award-winner A Sick Day for Amos McGee. Their many books, written together and individually, have become cherished additions to every modern child's library. It's a real treat to welcome both of them to Green Bean Books!

Why did the chicken cross the road? To get to story time, of course!
We're clucking with excitement to welcome both creators- author Sandy Asher and illustrator Mark Fearing- of the clucklingly hilarious picture book Chicken Story Time.
Sandy Ascher concocts a commotion of children and chickens with her story that ultimately celebrates the power of reading. Portland's own Mark Fearing adds his manic illustrations to this crazy tale.
