Children's Author Kim Smith Reads Boxitects

Wednesday, February 10, 11 am

Nothing’s better than building with boxes!

Meg is a brilliant and creative boxitect. She loves building extraordinary things out of ordinary cardboard boxes and impressing her classmates with what she creates. But then a new kid comes to Maker School: Simone. Simone is good at everything. Worst of all, she’s a boxitect too! Will Meg and Simone find a way to push past their rivalry and join creative forces?

Join author-illustrator Kim Smith and Paola Poletto, Director of Engagement and Learning as they discuss Donald Judd’s iconic stacked box sculpture in the AGO collection before Kim delves into a reading of her provocative picture book followed by an art-making activity.

Kim Smith is the New York Times–bestselling illustrator of several picture books, including Builder Brothers: Big Plans and the Ice Chips chapter-book series. She lives in Calgary.

This event is for all ages and especially creatives in pre-school and JK.

Presented in collaboration with HarperCollins Canada.
