Amherst children’s author to read from new book
SOUTH HADLEY — Amherst author and illustrator Aaron Becker will present his first children’s picture book, “Journey,” at the Odyssey Bookshop in South Hadley Tuesday at 4 p.m.
“Journey” is a story about a lonely girl who enters a magical world through a door she drew on her bedroom wall. The story is in the form of a wordless picture book, told only illustrations.
Becker, who has helped design characters for films by Disney and Pixar, will read from and discuss the making of “Journey,” followed by drawing activities for children.
The event will be in the upper level of the Odyssey Bookshop in the Village Commons.
