Join us at Baltimore County Public Library's Towson Branch to hear Jarret Krosoczka read from and discuss his illustrated memoir, Hey Kiddo.
Author and illustrator Jarrett Krosoczca shares his own story in the illustrated memoir "Hey Kiddo." At a very young age, Jarrett is cared for by his grandparents as his mother, an addict, cannot care for him herself. His father is absent as well, and it is not until his teenage years that Jarrett begins to piece together the truth of his family, reckoning with his mother and tracking down his father.
Jarrett Krosoczka is known for graphic novels designed for younger readers. He has written the "Lunch Lady" and "Platypus Police Squad" series, popular with middle school students. In this work, relatable to both teens and adults, Krosoczka utilizes the medium he works best in to turn the camera on himself in an effort to help reduce the stigma of addiction. "Hey, Kiddo" is a profoundly important memoir about growing up in a family grappling with addiction and finding the art that helps you survive.
