Adventurous Matisse is a little girl having all sorts of fun in a big world, but when her new little brother joins her family, she comes to realize she’s not quite as little as she thought. In this special family-friendly event, join illustrator Claire Keane for a reading of Little Big Girl, and hear how Keane got inspiration for her book from her own two little big kids. The reading will be followed by a Q&A and book signing with Keane. Little Big Girl will be available for purchase at the Museum Store.

This program is presented in conjunction with Make Believe: The World of Glen Keane and visitors of all ages are welcome to attend a companion talk program, Claire Keane: Finding Your Artistic Authenticity.
About the Speaker
Claire Keane is no stranger to drawing inspiration from family. As a kid, she was often a muse for her grandfather's comic strip The Family Circus, and watched her father, legendary Disney animator Glen Keane, design Ariel from The Little Mermaid (1989) after her mom. Now a mother herself, Claire too finds an endless source of inspiration right in her own home. She is the author of Once Upon a Cloud and is also known for her work as a visual development artist at Walt Disney Animation Studios on Tangled (2010) and Frozen (2013). She lives in Venice Beach, California with her husband and two kids, Matisse and Roman. You can learn more about Claire at claireonacloud.com.
