Caldecott Medal-winning author and illustrator to speak

Press Staff Writer

        Families, students, teachers, and children’s book lovers are invited to the Wood County District Public Library’s Meet the Author program featuring Caldecott Award-winning author Carole Lindstrom and illustrator Michaela Goade who will be discussing their book, “We Are Water Protectors.”
        The duo will be visiting the library, 251 N. Main St., Bowling Green, on Saturday, April 2 at 11 a.m. in the Atrium. Goade will be virtually present while Lindstrom will be visiting in-person.
        The Randolph Caldecott Medal annually recognizes the preceding year’s most distinguished American picture book for children. The winner of the 2021 medal, “We Are Water Protectors,” is inspired by Indigenous-led movements across North America and is a rallying cry to safeguard Earth’s water from harm and corruption.
        The event offers an opportunity for teachers and students to meet and listen to an award-winning author and illustrator, and a chance for children to meet their favorite book’s creators.
        During the program, there will be a book discussion where Lindstrom and Goade will discuss the creation of “We Are Water Protectors,” followed by a question-and-answer session and a book signing. Books will be available for purchase from the Friends of the Library.
        Registration is required, and seating is limited. To register, call 419-352-8253, email, or visit
