Micha Archer

Saturday, April 27, 11:00 am until 12:00 pm
Local author reads from her newest book, What’s New, Daniel? at Montague Center Library. After the reading books will be available for sale and the Friends of the Montague Public Libraries will host an art activity suitable for all ages. 

Leverett resident and Caldecott Honor winner Micha Archer’s incredibly detailed collages invite readers back into Daniel’s beautiful world, encouraging them to notice nature around them and see “What’s new?” Daniel explores the park in Spring and finds that there are in fact a lot of new things such as squirrels nesting, polliwogs growing, and migrating birds returning. Working in oil, watercolors, pen and ink, and collage, Archer creates layered pieces from various materials on paper and digitally. A world traveler, her sense of color and pattern is influenced by the folk art, crafts, and architecture of the world.
