“Hello, Friends,

We are thrilled to welcome author-illustrator Alessandro Sanna to New York this week for the inaugural New York Rights Fair and some dreamy book events and art workshops with Enchanted Lion.  Alessandro is considered one of Italy’s leading contemporary illustrators. He has earned wide recognition across Europe as an illustrator and author, and his work has appeared in The New York Times Book Reviewand The New Yorker. He is a prolific and popular creator of illustrated books for children and readers of all ages, including The River and Pinocchio: The Origin Story. He lives and works in Mantua, Italy.  We hope you enjoy this video, where Alessandro paints alongside a gorgeous live performance of an arrangement written especially for The River. We’ll be hosting a similar live performance in NYC later this week—read on for more details and event listings!”
Sending you warmest wishes from Greenpoint.
