Friday Night Family Night Presents Shane Evans: Olu's Dream

 Award-winning illustrator/author Shane Evans presents his new children’s book, Olu’s Dream, on Friday, October 9, at 7 p.m. at the Plaza Branch, 4801 Main St.


Olu’s fantastical dreams, where he discovers monsters, takes a ride on a whale, and speeds through space with his teddy bear, inspire him to use his imagination at any time of night or day.


Evans has illustrated more than twenty-five picture books for children, including The Way a Door Closes by Hope Anita Smith, a Coretta Scott King/John Steptoe Award winner, and Hold the Flag High and When Harriet Met Sojourner by Catherine Clinton. He is also the creator of the characters for television’s Shanna’s Show and Shane’s Kindergarten Countdown.


Admission to the event is free. Call 816.701.3407 to RSVP.
