Phil Bildner - MARVELOUS CORNELIUS: Hurricane Katrina and the Spirit of New Orleans

Please join us for a Sunday afternoon reading & signing with children's book author Phil Bildner featuring his new book, MARVELOUS CORNELIUS.

In New Orleans, there lived a man who saw the streets as his calling, and he swept them clean. He danced up one avenue and down another and everyone danced along. The old ladies whistled and whirled. The old men hooted and hollered. The barbers, bead twirlers, and beignet bakers bounded behind that one-man parade. But then came the rising Mississippi and a storm greater than anyone had seen before. In this heartwarming book about a real garbage man, Phil Bildner and John Parra tell the inspiring story of a humble man and the heroic difference he made in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

 

Phil Bildner is the author of numerous children's picture books and the co-creator of Sluggers, the New York Times bestselling middle-grade chapter book serial.
