A Conversation with Eugenia Mello: An instagram live event to celebrate the book "Moving"
September 08, 2020 | 6:00 pm
Award-winning illustrator Eugenia Mello has published her first-ever children's book titled Moving, a beautifully illustrated story about the emotional journey that is moving --especially to a different unfamiliar country-- and how a lonely young girl eventually finds familiarity within her new community through art, dance, and music. This book is an effort to channel emotions and allow for conversations with young readers about change and what it means to feel at home.
On Tuesday, September 8th Eugenia Mello @eumiel and illustrator & graphic designer Cynthia Alonso @cyndoor will have a conversation on Instagram Live about the children's book creation process from inception to publishing. Join at 6PM (ET) for a sneak peek look at the book and come prepared with questions!
How to watch: Open your Instagram app at 6PM (ET) and navigate to the Society's profile page. A pink circle will appear around the profile image with the words "Live". Click to watch!
