Join us Sat., April 22, 11 am as local artist Timothy Banks will read from his illustrated children’s book Monsters in Charleston.
About the Book: Be afraid, be very afraid… not to own a copy of the most frightening event in Charleston since Hurricane Matthew. For the first time in a single edition, twelve of the Lowcountry’s most reviled creatures can be found squished together in ghoulishly vivid color. Tour the old town through monstrous new eyes as these (sometimes slimy) visitors stomp, slide and rip their way through famous sites such as: the Battery, Folly Beach, and a swamp!
About the Author: Timothy has made designs for Nike, Paste Magazine, Egmont, Faber & Faber, and Nickelodeon. He has illustrated dozens of children’s books, and most recently reimagined the Wizard of Oz story for a new generation of young readers. In 2014, his work was chosen as the official poster for the Piccolo Spoleto Festival here in Charleston, one of the largest, comprehensive arts festivals in the US.
Timothy lives in Charleston, along with his wife, three wonderful daughters, and one crazy pug. They enjoy playing in their backyard, and watching alligators swim by their house.
