EMWF Kids: The Rock from the Sky — an event for schools!

Presented in partnership with Wellington County Library

Presenter: Jon Klassen

Jon Klassen joins us for a special event for school groups, online learners, and families during Canadian Children’s Book Week.

Here comes The Rock from the Sky, a hilarious meditation on the workings of friendship, fate, shared futuristic visions, and that funny feeling you get that there’s something off somewhere, but you just can’t put your finger on it. Merging broad visual suspense with wry wit, celebrated picture book creator Jon Klassen gives us a wholly original comedy for the ages.

This event will include ASL Interpretation.
