Flo & Wendell: A Reading with William Wegman
Saturday, October 5
This event is free for children and members of Aperture at the $75 level and above
Join acclaimed artist William Wegman and one of his famous dogs for a reading of his new children’s book, Flo & Wendell, followed by a book signing. In Flo & Wendell, Wegman combines his iconic photography with his background in painting to create a fanciful new world starring two irresistible new characters based on his real-life puppies.
Meet Flo. She’s a sophisticated big sister who’s part of a very artistic family. She likes playing with paint and wearing sweaters her mother knits. Flo also likes teasing her little brother, Wendell. They play hide-and-seek, but Flo doesn’t look very hard. They play dress up, too, but Wendell always gets the bad costumes. Their parents wish they would get along, and they do try . . . sometimes.
William Wegman, beloved author and visual artist, is known internationally for his photographs, videos, and paintings. He has written numerous books for children, including the New York Times bestseller Puppies, and his videos appear regularly on Sesame Street. Wegman and his family, which includes his four dogs Candy, Bobbin, Flo, and Topper (the real life Flo and Wendell), divide their time between New York and Maine.
