by Association of Illustrators in New Events on Sunday 20 March 2011

Anthony Browne is one of the world‘s most celebrated creators of picture books, with classics such as Voices in the Park, Willy, and Hugh and Gorilla to his name. He has won the Kate Greenaway Medal twice, and the Kurt Maschler ’Emil‘ Award three times, and in 2000, he became the first British illustrator to win the Hans Christian Andersen Award.

In recognition of his outstanding contribution to children’s literature, he was appointed the UK Children’s Laureate for 2009 to 2011. To celebrate both this honour and his career, the Old Cinema at the University of Westminster will present an overview of his life and work on Monday March 21 at 7pm. Tickets via their website.
