Event Update:

This event has been postponed to a later date. Please see the updated listing for the new event date and ticket information.

Join author Katie Yamasaki as she reads from and discusses her newest picture book that celebrates the life of her grandfather, the acclaimed Japanese American architect Minoru Yamasaki. She will also lead a short interactive art activity connected to the story. This event is appropriate for kids of all ages.

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Minoru Yamasaki described the feeling he sought to create in his buildings as serenity, surprise, and delight. Here Katie Yamasaki charts his life and work: his childhood in Seattle’s Japanese immigrant community, paying his way through college working in Alaska’s notorious salmon canneries, his success in architectural school, and the transformative structures he imagined and built. A Japanese American man who faced brutal anti-Asian racism in post-World War II America and an outsider to the architectural establishment, he nonetheless left his mark on the world, from the American Midwest to New York City, Asia, and the Middle East. This striking picture book renders one artist’s work through the eyes of another, and tells a story of a man whose vision, hard work, and humanity led him to the pinnacle of his field.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Katie Yamasaki works primarily as a muralist and picture book creator. She has painted more than 80 murals around the world, and her most recent book is Dad Bakes. She lives in Brooklyn with her husband and their daughter.
