Do you enjoy children's books -- or know someone who does? Join us!

Be a part of the Wisconsin Reflections audience as we welcome Madison author Kevin Henkes. Taping takes place on Thursday, March 3 at 9:45 a.m. in the Wisconsin Public Television studios, 2nd floor, Vilas Hall, 821 University Ave.

To RSVP: e-mail with your name and how you heard about the taping.

Henkes, who lives in Madison, has written and illustrated 40 picture books, board books and novels. His remarkable career includes a rare combination: top honors for both writing and illustrations. He won the Caldecott Medal for Kitten’s First Full Moon, a Newbery Honor for Olive’s Ocean, and a Caldecott Honor for Owen. Best known for his mouse books (including Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse and others), his recent work includes the picture book Little White Rabbit (January 2011) and the novel Junonia (May 2011).

The time commitment for this taping will be roughly 90 minutes, including a question-and-answer period. (Please note that the show is not geared toward children.)

Hope to see you there!
