Award-winning author Brian Selznick returns to the Mahaiwe for a special multi-media presentation talk, Q&A, and signing event with his newest illustrated novel, The Marvels. In 2008, Brian’s groundbreaking book The Invention of Hugo Cabret was awarded the Caldecott Medal. It was nominated for a National Book Award and was the basis for Martin Scorsese's Oscar winning film Hugo. His follow up illustrated novel, Wonderstruck, debuted at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list. 

Selznick described going down to the Thames River during a recent visit to London and “mudlarking”—looking at things that had washed up on the shore. “The beach was scattered with different colored stones and rocks, small bits and pieces of London history that have fallen into the river and washed up on the shore over tens or thousands of years,” he said. It made him think about “the vast power of storytelling—stories passed down from generation to generation, and the ability to transform life into a story over powerlessness. That’s what The Marvels is about—the triumph of storytelling.”
