My Hair Is Magic!

If you’ve ever felt sometimes like your hair has a personality all its own, you’ll want to meet the feisty little girl at the center of ML Marroquin’s debut picture book My Hair Is Magic, who confidently celebrates her glorious hair, “big like clouds, SO beautiful it draws a crowd.” Artist Tonya Engel brings this magical hair to life in full color, using collage and acrylic and oil paints to create hair that transforms into a musical symphony, a ferocious bear, or ocean waves. Marroquin and Engel will read from their book and offer insights into its creation. Tune in live for your chance to ask questions and interact with the book’s creators! Donations received in connection with this event will go to support the Boston Globe's Globe Santa program.

Ages 4–8
