Author and Illustrator Tracy Subisak Storytime

Join us for a special storytime with author & illustrator Tracy Subisak! Tracy's latest book is This Book Is Not for You! by New York Times bestselling and Newbery Honor–winning author Shannon Hale. The storytime is in partnership with the Ohioana Library Association.

Stanley’s thrilled for bookmobile day—until the old man at the window refuses to lend him the story he wants, all because it features a girl. “Girl books” are only for girls, the book man insists, just like cat books are only for cats and robot books are only for robots. But when a dinosaur arrives at the bookmobile and successfully demands a book about ponies, Stanley musters the courage to ask for the tale he really wants—about a girl adventurer fighting pirates on the open seas. By speaking up, Stanley inspires the people, cats, robots, and goats around him to read more stories outside their experiences and enjoy the pleasure of a good book of their choosing.

Tracy Subisak is the creator of Jenny Mei Is Sad and the illustrator of several picture books, including the nonfiction Wood, Wire, Wings: Emma Lilian Todd Invents an Airplane. Tracy is from Ohio and now lives in the Pacific Northwest. To learn more about Tracy, you can visit her website, tracysubisak.com and her Instagram, @tracysubisak.
