Visiting Author Duncan Tonatiuh

Fri, 02/14/2020 - 10:29am

Thanks to the generous support of our PTA, author/illustrator Duncan Tonatiuh will be visiting CCES on Wednesday, March 18, 2020. Students will be learning about Duncan’s books and illustrations for the next few weeks in Library Media class. His work is inspired by ancient Mexican art, particularly that of the Mixtec codex. His aim is to create images and stories that honor the past, but that are relevant to people, especially children, nowadays.

We invite you to purchase books on your own and send them to the Media Center for the author to autograph. The books will be returned to students the afternoon of his visit or the following day. Feel free to click the author information below to find out more about Duncan Tonatiuh.

Please attach a copy of this form  when your child sends a book, or books, to the Media Center. The media staff will respond with an email confirmation when we receive the books. The deadline to send books to the Media Center is Friday, March 13.
