Great Big Book Bash is an annual children's author/illustrator event sponsored by the Huntsville Public Library Foundation and Primrose Schools.  This year's guest is illustrator Harry Bliss.  Mr. Bliss will be giving two exciting and kid-friendly presentations at the Main location of the Huntsville-Madison County Public Library.  A book signing will follow both presentations and books will be available to purchase the day of the event.

Harry Bliss is a cartoonist and cover artist for The New Yorker magazine. Growing up in upstate New York amidst a family of successful painters and illustrators, Bliss went on to study painting at The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Illustration at The University of the Arts (BFA) and Syracuse University (MA). Prior to his cartoons and covers for The New Yorker magazine, Bliss illustrated dozens of book covers for writers such as Lawrence Block, Dorothy Uhnak, Bob Dole, and Fiona Buckley.

Bliss has illustrated many books and produces cartoons and covers for The New Yorker. His first book for children, A Fine, Fine School by Sharon Creech was a New York Times bestseller, as was Diary of a Worm, Diary of a Spider and Diary of a Fly all by Doreen Cronin. In 2008 Bliss published 'Louise, The Adventures of a Chicken' (Harper Collins) by Kate DiCamillo followed by 'Luke on the Loose' (Toon Books) in 2009.

Tickets are $5 in advance and $8 at the door.  Purchase them at any library location. Read more about Great Big Book Bash: Harry Bliss
