Brian Selznick - "Hugo" at The Mahaiwe
New York Times-bestselling author and illustrator Brian Selznick will talk about his Caldecott Award-winning book, The Invention of Hugo Cabret and how it became Martin Scorsese's 2011 Oscar-winning film Hugo on Sunday at The Mahaiwe Theatre in Great Barrington.
Following a screening of the film, Selznick will participate in a Q & A with his Scholastic editor, Berkshire resident Tracy Mack, and then sign books.
Selznick graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design with the intention of becoming a set designer for the theater. However, after spending three years selling books and designing window displays for a children's bookstore in Manhattan, he was inspired to create children's books of his own.
