LBB Virtual Celebrity Storytime: Anne Marie Houppert & Daniel Wiseman - What About X?

Tuesday, February 2, 11am CT
Left Bank Books' Facebook Page

Left Bank Books is excited to present another Virtual Celebrity Storytime! We welcome author Anne Marie Houppert and illustrator Daniel Wiseman, who will read aloud and talk about how they made their new picture book, What About X? An Alphabet Adventure, on Facebook Live at 11am CT on February 2. Join us on our Facebook Page and order a copy of What About X? from Left Bank Books to support authors and independent bookstores!


From A to Z, the students of the Alphabet Academy are heading on a camping trip in this playful picture book
All the letters of the alphabet know exactly what to pack for their big camping trip. B is bringing binoculars. C is collecting canteens. But X can’t think of a thing to bring! In her picture book debut, author Anne Marie Houppert combines the excitement of a first field trip with the magic of collaboration and friendship. Illustrator Daniel Wiseman paints maximum personality into each character, underlining the idea that everyone is special and necessary—just like every letter of the alphabet!

Anne Marie Houppert is a senior librarian at the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine in Washington, DC. She has published articles in industry journals and authored a blog for National Geographic magazine called NG Revisited. This is her first picture book. She lives in Rockville, Maryland. 

Daniel Wiseman is the illustrator of many picture books and board books, including Rad! and When Your Lion Needs a Bath. He lives in Knoxville, Tennessee, with his family.

All you need to do to participate is log in to your personal Facebook account, go to Left Bank Books' Facebook Page, "Like" the page, and wait for the livestream to begin on the page (you may need to refresh the page periodically until the stream begins).
