Recently named a Boston Globe–Horn Book honor book, Watercress, written by Andrea Wang and illustrated by Jason Chin, tells an understated but deeply moving story about a seemingly simple family meal that’s laden with significance for its Chinese American family. In this story time, artist Jason Chin and author Andrea Wang will introduce viewers to this aptly bittersweet story and Chin’s exquisitely detailed watercolor illustrations, which mirror the theme by utilizing both Chinese and Western brushwork techniques. Don’t miss your opportunity to explore Boston’s Chinatown while enjoying a StoryWalk based on Watercress! See our website for details. Sponsored by Simmons University.

Donations made during registration or during the session itself will go to support the Boston Globe's Globe Santa program, gifting new books and toys to children in need this holiday season!
