An Afternoon with Oliver Jeffers in Ely
November 17, 2017 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm
We are SO EXCITED to announce that the wonderful children’s author and illustrator, Oliver Jeffers, is coming to Ely to celebrate his new book, ‘Here We Are’!
‘Here We Are’ is a heartfelt, thought-provoking and very beautiful book which explores our planet, how we live on it, and our humanity. Oliver’s previous, award-winning books, including ‘Lost and Found’, ‘The Heart and the Bottle’, ‘Stuck’ and ‘The Day the Crayons Quit’ have delighted, amused and inspired children for years, and we are certain that his latest creation will become another classic.
Please bring your family and join us at this rare and special event with one of our best-loved children’s writers.
Here’s a little snippet from the book…
“Well, hello..and welcome to this Planet.We call it Earth. Our world can be a bewildering place, especially if you’ve only just got here. Your head will be filled with questions, so let’s explore what makes our planet and how we live on it. From land and sky, to people and time, these notes can be your guide and start you on your journey. And you’ll figure lots of things out for yourself. Just remember to leave notes for everyone else… Some things about our planet are pretty complicated, but things can be simple, too: you’ve just got to be kind.”
