The Vancouver Writers Fest presents
64. A Morning of Cozy Classics
Felt artist, author and lawyer Holman Wang shares how he discovered his passion for creating children’s books and juggles careers of art and words. Bring your little ones—and your creative ambitions!
Whether Pride and Prejudice or The Empire Strikes Back, Holman Wang’s beautifully-detailed books abridge literary and cinematic classics into just 12 words and 12 needle-felted images. These original, exquisite and joyful interpretations have earned accolades in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, People, and The Globe & Mail, amongst others. Who would guess that Wang is also a lawyer by day? In this family-friendly event, the felt artist and author shares how he discovered his passion for children’s books, creates his art and juggles careers. He’ll also talk about his newest books, Great Job, Mom! and Great Job, Dad!, hailed by the School Library Journal as “masterpiece[s]”. Bring your little ones—and your own creative ambitions!
Presented in collaboration with the Vancouver International Children’s Festival.
