The Ivy is excited to celebrate Passover with a very special visit from author Susan Kusel, who will read her first picture book, The Passover Guest, a fresh retelling of a classic I. L. Peretz story. We will also be joined by the illustrator, Sean Rubin.
It's the spring of 1933 in Washington, DC, and the Great Depression is hitting young Muriel's family hard. Muriel assumes her family is too poor to hold a Passover Seder this year, but an act of kindness and a mysterious magician change everything.
Susan Kusel is a synagogue librarian, a children’s book buyer and the former chair of the Sydney Taylor Award Book Award Committee. With graphic novelist Sean Rubin, she has created a beautiful, carefully researched picture book that young readers—as well as adults—are sure to treasure.
Bolivar, the first book Sean Rubin both wrote and illustrated, received three starred reviews and was nominated for an Eisner award, an ELG and a Ringo award. He was nominated for the 2018 Russ Manning Award for Most Promising Newcomer, a comics industry honor, for his work on Bolivar.
