Join beloved local author/artist duo Sarah Steward and David Small as they and we take a vow of love and commitment to the power and wonder of reading in celebration of their beautiful new work, THIS BOOK OF MINE.
This Book of Mine is a celebration of the power of reading, of the ways in which books launch our adventures, give us comfort, challenge our imaginations, and offer us connection. From new mothers to fantasy lovers, butterfly hunters to musicians, the diverse readers of This Book of Mine all share a common passion for their favorite books—whether freshly discovered at the bookstore or library or saved from childhood and reread across a lifetime.
Husband-and-wife duo Sarah Stewart and David Small have worked together on several picture books, including The Gardener, a Caldecott Honor Book, among many other awards; and The Library, which is loved around the world. Small has also illustrated other acclaimed books, including the 2001 Caldecott Medal winner, So You Want to Be President? by Judith St. George, and his graphic memoir for adults, Stitches, a finalist for the National Book Award. Stewart and Small live in a historic home filled with thousands of books on a bend of the St. Joseph River in Michigan
