Which team was that, you ask? It was . . . CHILDREN'S LITERATURE, of course.
I spent Super Bowl Sunday watching a film about books, which, to me, is so much more fun that watching overpaid grown men chase a ball.
I was so glad to get an invitation to see Library of the Early Mind, a documentary that's "a grown up look at children's literature." UCLA event was underwritten by the Frances Clark Sayer's Lecture Fund.
The film was wonderful and lots of our friends were in it including my editor, Arthur Levine . . .
Afterward, the always chic Virginia Walter lead a Q and A with the director, Edward J. Delaney . . .
Since it is The Year of Peepy, there was a reception for her following the discussion . . .
Here's a peek at the documentary . . .
Not to brag, but Peepy and I have met some pretty talented artists . . .
But only one of them has written a COMIC BOOK . . . OPERA . . . IN FRENCH!!!!
Yes, that's the amazing Cecil Castellucci!
Les Aventures de Madame Merveille utilizes the talents of four comic book artists. What we saw at the Egyptian Theater was a film of the production. And since neither Peepy or I speak French very well, (although eons ago I did work for Disneyland Paris as their video production supervisor).
Cecil explained it to us before the film began . . .
Here's a clip of Cecil's Comic Book Opera . . .
