Children’s Book Committee Co-Chair on Gerald McDermott
School Library Journal recently published a moving tribute to Gerald McDermott, beloved author, illustrator and filmmaker, remembered by many for Anansi the Spider: A Tale from the Ashanti. Gerald McDermott: A Legacy of Magical Storytelling is certainly worth a few moments out of your day and we are pleased to note that Children’s Book Committee co-chair and Bank Street faculty member Mollie Welsh Kruger is quoted in the piece on McDermott’s ability to engage her 2nd graders.
“What McDermott did with words and illustrations will continue bringing stories to life in classrooms.”
– Mollie Welsh Kruger
