Join San Diego State University librarian Linda Salem for an informative presentation on pioneering Japanese children’s picture book author and illustrator, Takeo Takei. Few of Takei’s children’s works are in translation, with little published about him and his work outside of the Japanese language. This presentation will include an introduction to Takei’s work, a history of Japanese illustration, and his connection to well known San Diego children librarian Clara Breed who collected his work. This event will take place in the Shiley Special Events Suite
