Manhattan Beach Library - RSVP Requested

Start 2018 with Love!

{pages} and the Manhattan Beach Library are thrilled to welcome uber children's author Matt de la Peña and illustrator Loren Long to Manhattan Beach.  The event will be held at the Manhattan Beach Library.  We will be selling their new collaboration Love at the event and we now have copies at {pages}.  

From Newbery Medal-winning author Matt de la Peña and bestselling illustrator, Loren Long comes a story about the strongest bond there is and the diverse and powerful ways it connects us all.

"In the beginning there is light 
and two wide-eyed figures standing near the foot of your bed 
and the sound of their voices is love.
A cab driver plays love softly on his radio
while you bounce in back with the bumps of the city
and everything smells new, and it smells like life."

In this heartfelt celebration of love, Newbery Medal-winning author Matt de la Pena and bestselling illustrator Loren Long depict the many ways we experience this universal bond, which carries us from the day we are born throughout the years of our childhood and beyond. With a lyrical text that's soothing and inspiring, this tender tale is a needed comfort and a new classic that will resonate with readers of every age.
