Eric Rohmann

Eric Rohmann, the 2003 Caldecott Winner, will give a presentation about his book My Friend Rabbit on Wednesday, April 30, at 7:30 p.m. at the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center in Storrs. The book is a lighthearted celebration of the friendship between Mouse and Rabbit. Through hand-colored relief prints, the characters tumble and spill from the page.

A resident of the Chicago area, Rohmann is painter, a printmaker and a fine bookmaker. He also was awarded a Caldecott Honor in 1995 for his debut book, Time Flies.

Rohmann's talk is hosted by the UConn Co-op and is free and open to the public.
