Internationally renowned Illustrator Jon Klassen is best known for his best-selling Hat Box trilogy (I Want My Hat Back, This Is Not My Hat, We Found a Hat), among many other loved titles.
In celebration of the release of his highly anticipated The Rock From The Sky (published by Walker Books in the UK), the AOI is delighted to welcome Jon for an insightful and inspiring online event.
Joined by his Art Director and Candlewick Press Creative Director, Ann Stott, and chaired by AOI Membership Director Rachel Hill, the conversation will delve deep into the process of The Rock from The Sky, the evolution of Jon’s career so far, the important relationship between publisher and illustrator, and much more. The talk will be followed by a Q&A where we’ll take questions from the audience.
This event will be hosted on Demio. Once your ticket is booked look for your Confirmation e-mail; this will have further instructions of how to register and receive your unique link to attend the session (there is no need to sign up for a trial or an account)
All participants will instantly receive an exclusive 15% discount to signed printed copies of The Rock from the Sky, which will also include a limited edition print.
The AOI implements the principle of inclusivity and doesn’t wish to turn away participants for lack of funds. If you are interested in taking part but are financially limited, we have a limited number of free bursary places we’d like to offer to those who need it most.

This event is presented by the AOI in partnership with Walker Books, and with thanks to West End Lane bookshop.
