Closing General Session featuring Robbie Robertson and David Shannon Speaker Series Moscone Convention Center
Esplanade 305
Description :

The Closing General Session is a not-to-miss event, where current ALA President Courtney L. Young will pass the gavel to the 2015-2016 ALA President Sari Feldman and introduce the new Division Presidents. An exciting conversation with Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Robbie Robertson and Caldecott Honor-winner (No, David!) David Shannon will close out the conference as they talk about their new book, Hiawatha and the Peacemaker. Written in a lyrical voice and paired with arresting oil paintings, the book is bound to both fascinate and educate your young students and patrons about Native American history.
Robertson was the lead guitarist and primary songwriter of the legendary musical group The Band. Born of Mohawk and Cayuga descent, he learned the story of Hiawatha and his spiritual guide, the Peacemaker, as part of the Iroquois oral tradition. Hiawatha was a strong and articulate Mohawk chosen to translate the Peacemaker’s message of unity for the five warring Iroquois nations during the 14th century. This message not only united the tribes but also forever changed how the Iroquois governed themselves—a blueprint for democracy that would later inspire the authors of the U.S. Constitution. Shannon is the internationally-acclaimed illustrator of numerous bestselling books for children, and his illustrations have appeared in a wide variety of publications including The New York Times, Time, and Rolling Stone.
