This year’s summer reading theme is “Oceans of Possibilities”.  The artist for all ages of the 2022 program is Sophie Blackall. She has written and illustrated many books, including 2019 Caldecott Medal winner Hello Lighthouse, the 2016 Caldecott Medal winner Finding Winnie, the Ivy and Bean series, and illustrated The Beatryce Prophecy by Kate DiCamillo, in addition to many other books.
