About Picture Book Club

Brookline Booksmith's Picture Book Club spends every Tuesday afternoon discussing the art and design elements of picture books. Our special monthly author-illustrator visits provide the unique opportunity to chat one-on-one with the people behind the books! Join us for a reading and Q&A with Jessica Love as she discusses her creative process! Perfect for ages 3-8, but open to all lovers of picture books, writing, and illustration.

About Guest Author Jessica Love & the book!

Jessica Love is an author/illustrator, and also an actress. Her first book, Julián is a Mermaid was the recipient of the Stonewall Book Award. Julián at the Wedding is her second book; it welcomes readers back into Julián and his abuela’s world with Love's characteristically sparse prose and vibrant illustrations in Julián at the Wedding.

Follow Julián and his cousin Marisol as they celebrate in the best possible way—hiding under tables, playing with the brides’ pet dog, and creating a beautiful solution to a very muddy problem.
