Butler Libraries present “I Lay My Stitches Down: An Evening with Children’s Book Illustrator Michele Wood” from 6-7:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 7, in Irwin Library at Butler University.

Admission is free and open to the public. Call (317) 940-9227 for more information.

Wood, a children’s book author based in Indianapolis, will discuss her recent most work, I Lay My Stitches Down: Poems of American Slavery. Written by Cynthia Grady, the book uses the American folk tradition of quilting as a structural framework. In her illustrations, Wood employs African and American textile patterns and folk art motifs to create a moving witness and beautiful complement to the poetry.

The book has been selected for the New York Public Library's "Children's Books 2012: 100 Books for Reading and Sharing" list.

Following the presentation, Wood will sign books, which will be available for sale at the event. Light refreshments will be served.
