The Sound of All Things
Wednesday, March 9, 7pm

In THE SOUND OF ALL THINGS (March 2016) Myron Uhlberg, acclaimed author of Dad, Jackie, and Me and A Storm Called Katrina,
partners with fine artist, Ted Papoulas, to explore the joys and challenges of a child who must translate the world of sound for his deaf parents.

 
On a trip to Coney Island, a Brooklyn family enjoys the rides, the food, and the sights—but only one of them can experience the sounds. The son does his best to interpret the noisy surroundings through sign language, but he can’t seem to find the words to convey the sensations. When the family drops by the library on their way home, the boy discovers all the language he needs to explain the hearing world to his father.
Brought brilliantly to life by Ted Papoulas’s stunning paintings of Brooklyn and Coney Island in the 1930s, this sensitively portrayed story speaks to an important and almost unique topic in the world of children’s books.
 
Myron Uhlberg, a retired businessman, is the author of several picture books and one adult memoir. He lives in Santa Monica, CA.
 
Ted Papoulas earned his illustration degree from Pratt Institute, where he fell in love with Brooklyn, a continual source of inspiration for his art. He’s been a freelance illustrator and participated in fine art exhibitions. The Sound of All Things is his first picture book. He lives in Montclair, NJ with his wife Drury and their daughters, Sally and Tess.
