My husband, Steven Withrow, is co-producer of a film called Library of the Early Mind, which explores the world of children's books. Before now you could only see the film at designated screenings. It is now available to purchase! Yay!
If you would like to see the film, you have two options. You can purchase the hard copies which will be available on December 1st, or you can view the film as a digital download. To find out more about how to purchase/view the film click here: How to view/purchase Library of the Early Mind.
In this film you will see some children's book greats, like Chris Van Allsburg ('Polar Express'), Jerry Pinkney ('The Lion and the Mouse'), Daniel Handler (aka 'Lemony Snicket'), Lois Lowry ('The Giver'), R.L. Stine ('Goosebumps'), Jeff Kinney ('Diary of a Wimpy Kid'), Mo Willems (Knuffle Bunny'), Jane Yolen (author of more than 300 books), Norton Juster ('The Phantom Tollbooth'), Peter H. Reynolds ('Someday'), Brian Selznick ('Hugo Cabret'), Jack Gantos ('Rotton Ralph') and many, many more!
I am very proud of Steve for all the hard work he has put into this film. I was lucky to be able to help out with it here and there and to meet some of these wonderful children's book author's and illustrators. My daughter and I even got to be in the film! It's a true labor of love. So, if you love children's books, this is a must see!
