Come experience the origin story of a young but very powerful superhero: the Blur! There was always something special about her—from extra-bendy limbs to the ability to hear just about anything. Author Minh Lê and illustrator and Caldecott Medalist Dan Santat, whose previous collaboration, Drawn Together, won the 2019 Asian/Pacific American Award for Literature, tell this affecting story of a kid who seems to move in a sped-up blur, from milestone to milestone, right before her parents’ eyes.

Moderator: Sharon O’Neal, associate professor emerita and co-director of the Central Texas Writing Project at Texas State University
