Clarke Historical Library’s David M. and Eunice Sutherland Burgess Endowed Speaker: Arthur Yorinks – “My Life in the Arts”
Arthur Yorinks’ life in the arts began when he was six - with music and stories - and he’s still listening to (and sometimes playing) music and living in the world of story. He is the author of over forty acclaimed and award-winning books, including Hey, Al, which earned the Caldecott Medal in 1987. His writing has been hailed as “one of the most distinctive prose styles in children’s literature.”
