Buy a copy of Square (while supplies last) or a $10 gift card to attend. This event will take place in the Rare Book Room, located on the 3rd floor of the Strand and accessible via the in-store elevators or next door at 826 Broadway through the stairs or elevator.
Meet New York Times best-selling best buds Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen as they celebrate the release of their newest picture book Square!
This book is about Triangle’s friend, Square. Square spends every day taking blocks from a pile below the ground and bringing them to a pile above the ground. This book is also about Square’s friend, Circle. Circle thinks Square is an artistic genius. But is he really? Understated and striking in its simplicity, this funny, thoughtful offering from two of today’s most talented picture-book creators emphasizes the importance of keeping your eyes — and your mind — open to wonder where others see only rubble and rocks.
Join us in the Rare Book Room to listen to Mac and Jon read Square, the companion book to Triangle (also about some seriously silly and sneaky shapes). They’ll also talk about making books together, tell plenty of jokes, and there will be some live drawing too!
