Book Reading: Maria Gianferrari & Jia Liu

April 7 at 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Join us on April First Saturday for a reading and signing of Terrific Tongues! with author Maria Gianferrari and illustrator Jia Liu! Event is free and open to the public.

About Terrific Tongues!

This fascinating and whimsical nonfiction picture book uses humorous comparisons and playful artwork to teach children the unusual ways that a variety of animals–from woodpeckers to snakes to bats–use their tongues to find food, eat, and clean themselves.

About Maria

Maria would love an air conditioner-like tongue to combat Virginia’s hot and humid summers, or a tongue like a straw for sipping cold ice tea! But she’ll make do with kisses from her rescue mutt, Becca. Terrific Tongues is Maria’s first book with Boyds Mills Press. She is also the author of the Penny & Jelly books, Coyote Moon, Officer Katz & Houndini and Hello Goodbye Dog. Maria lives in Virginia with her scientist husband, artist daughter, and writing companion, Becca. Please visit her at mariagianferrari.com, on Facebook or Instagram as pennyandjelly.

About Jia

Jia Liu received her MFA in Illustration from Maryland Institute College Arts. This is her debut picture book.
