Hop on in with your family to the Central Library to meet Rosemary Wells, the creator of the popular Max & Ruby book series. At the special event, Wells will read one of her stories and also sign purchased copies of her books. Participants are invited to make their own Max & Ruby-themed crafts.

  • 2:30 p.m. Sunday, January 12, Central, Youth Center

We will also celebrate the addition of her original artwork from “Bunny Mail” to the Library’s collection. The 2004 book follows Ruby as she sends out party invitations, but Max sends a letter of his own. When Max’s letter is delivered to Grandma, she thinks Max is just saying hello, so Max sends her another one. That’s when Grandma realizes Max is asking for something special.

Wells, 76, has written and illustrated more than 120 books for children, more than 40 of those featuring bunny-siblings Max & Ruby, who also star in a Nickelodeon TV show. Many of the characters in Wells’ books are animals who find themselves in human predicaments.

She worked as an art director and designer before illustrating her first book. Now, she travels all across the country promoting childhood literacy.
