Marc Brown speaks at Boston Public Library
Boston Public Library welcomes esteemed writers of children’s literature to the 2014 “Gateway to Reading” Lowell Lecture Series. The series features recipients of the highest honors in the children’s literature field for their groundbreaking and timeless works. Today’s speaker is none other than Marc Brown, the man behind the much-loved characters in the WGBH-produced hit children’s series, Arthur.
Arthur is based on Brown's best-selling adventure books: more than 66 million are now in print in the US. The show is the most-watched children’s program on PBS and the winner of six Emmy Awards. Bravo, Marc!
Brown speaks at 2:00pm today at the BPL’s Rabb Lecture Hall, 700 Boylston St., Boston. Find more information here.
