QUICK LOOK

Actress Viola Davis to Discuss Her
Children's Book Tuesday in New Orleans

V

iola Davis will close the 2018 Annual Conference as she discusses
her children's book, Corduroy Takes
a Bow. Illustrated by Jody Wheeler, Davis
celebrates 50 years of America's favorite teddy
bear with a brand new, classically illustrated
picture book. Using her own experiences as
a Tony Award-winning Broadway actress,
Davis writes the story of Corduroy and Lisa's
first trip to the theater. As usual, Corduroy
adventures off on his own, and readers follow
his escapades as he explores all over: from
the orchestra pit, to the costumes rack, to
the props table, and ultimately onto the
stage itself, before being reunited with Lisa.
A  beautifully illustrated tale with a classic
feel, sure to spark an interest in theater in
children of any age. The book will be available Fall 2018. This session will take place on
Tuesday, June 26, 2018, 10:00 - 11:30 a.m.
