"Brian Selznick is one of the great artists of our time." - Monica Edinger, Huffington Post
We are so excited about The Marvels (out in stores Sept. 15th), a new book by master storyteller Brian Selznick, creator of the #1 New York Times bestsellers The Invention of Hugo Cabret (which was the basis for Martin Scorsese’s Oscar-winning film “Hugo”) and Wonderstruck, which is also slated to become a movie.
At the recent Book Expo America convention, The Marvels was one of the hottest galleys, and those lucky enough to snag advance copies have been raving about the book, like this early review from the Huffington Post.
If you live in the New York City area, you’ll have an opportunity to meet Brian Selznick at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and grab one of these coveted advance copies of The Marvels (while supplies last).
On Wednesday, June 10th, Brian Selznick and Nadine Orenstein (a curator at the Metropolitan Museum of Art who is an expert in Rembrandt drawings and prints) will talk about how artists pack emotion into dark lines on a white ground, and how Rembrandt told ancient stories through the faces of the people he saw around him. The audience will also get a sneak peek into Brian's creative process for his new book, The Marvels.

We can’t wait to see this latest masterpiece from Brian Selznick!
