As this will be an experiential keynote, teachers should be ready to engage with MISTER G’s singing and dancing -- and have fun!
This literacy-themed format focuses on MISTER G’s work as an author of multicultural picture books published by Penguin Random House. He shares the inspiration for the books, and the collaborative process with international illustrators from Mexico, Thailand and Israel.

The performance can be augmented with immersive visuals that provide captivating engagement. Events are followed by book signings.
