Book: The Word Collector by Peter H. Reynolds 

Art: Works from the Special Exhibition Saul Steinberg: A Writer Who Draws 

"Some people collect stamps. Some people collect coins. Some people collect art. And Jerome? Jerome collected words . . . In this extraordinary new tale from Peter H. Reynolds, Jerome discovers the magic of the words all around him --short and sweet words, two-syllable treats, and multisyllable words that sound like little songs. Words that connect, transform, and empower. From the creator of The Dot, I Am Human, and Happy Dreamer comes a celebration of finding your own words --and the impact you can have when you share them with the world."

-Reynolds, Peter. The Word Collector. Orchard Books; Illustrated edition (January 30, 2018)

All art supplies are provided by the Norton Museum of Art and can be collected at the Main Library.
