Children’s Book Committee Co-Chair on Gerald McDermott

January 24, 2013

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.  anansi-the-spider

“What McDermott did with words and illustrations will continue bringing stories to life in classrooms.”
– Mollie Welsh Kruger
