Illustration Institute & Friends of the Peaks Island Library present Katie Yamasaki

  • Peaks Island Community Center/Peaks Library 129 Island Avenue Peaks Island, Maine 04108 USA (map)

Award winning Children’s book author/illustrator/muralist


Join us for an evening with Brooklyn-based illustrator/muralist/children’s book author Katie Yamasaki on Peaks Island at the Peaks Island Community Center (next to the Peaks Island Library). Katie uses both books and murals to tell stories. Mostly participatory projects, her murals are in schools and prisons, museums and hospitals around the world and work to provide a platform for dialogue and expression in communities whose stories are often under-told. In her books, Katie seeks to tell diverse stories that delve into the inner lives of children during moments great and small.  

 Katie will share a presentation of her work, including her processes for creating both books and murals answer questions and sign books.
