Minh Lê - The Blur - at Takoma Park Library, MD

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, June 28, 2022 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Please review library guidelines for masking requirements.

This event is in-person at the Takoma Park, MD Community Center Auditorium

Politics and Prose is delighted to partner with the Takoma Park Maryland Library for an exciting program with children's book author Minh Lê.

The Blur by Minh Le, illustrated by Dan Santat, is both a superhero origin story and a heartstring-tugging tribute to the velocity of childhood.   From the moment “The Blur” is born she demonstrates tongue-in-cheek superpowers – a supersonic voice, elastic limbs and ultra-magnetic abilities.  One day she takes her first step and from that day forward she is constantly on the move.  The years speed by and before her parents know it, she appears in a cap and gown. Parents will relate to the poignant story while children will enjoy the superhero jokes and bright, animated illustrations. 

Minh Lê is a national early childhood policy expert and the author of the picture books Drawn Together and Let Me Finish!  He has written for the New York Times, the Horn Book, and the Huffington Post. Green Lantern Legacy is his first graphic novel. A first-generation Vietnamese American, he went to Dartmouth College and has a master’s in education from Harvard University. Outside of spending time with his beautiful wife and sons in their San Diego (CA) home, Minh’s favorite place to be is in the middle of a good book. 

Ages 3-8 (And their parents!)
