Join Andrea J. Loney in celebration of the publication of her engrossing new book, Take a Picture of Me, James Vanderzee! There will be a book signing, snacks, music, and a Photo Fun station for taking pictures with family and friends.When James VanDerZee was a young boy, he saved up his money to buy his first camera. He took photos of just about anyone who would sit still for a portrait, and he worked hard to make his subjects look their best. It wasn’t long before everyone in town was saying, “Take a picture of me, James VanDerZee!” Winner of Lee & Low’s New Voices Award, Take a Picture of Me, James Vanderzee! tells the story of a groundbreaking artist whose work spanned more than eighty years, chronicled an important era in Harlem, and captured the beauty and pride of its people.
