Original artwork and preparatory sketches by James Rumford, an award-winning children's book author-illustrator, are currently on display at the Hawaii State Library through August 15.
"The Many Worlds of James Rumford" exhibit is available for viewing in the koa wood case in the Adult Reading Room during Library open hours. Rumford's featured artwork includes: Tales from Africa, Tales from Hawaii Nei, Tales from Far Away, and Stories of Discovery. The exhibit coincides with the just concluded biennial Children's Literature Hawaii Conference (June 20-23), where Rumford was a featured keynote speaker. The Hawaii State Public Library System is hosting the exhibit as an officially-acknowledged supporter of the Children's Literature Hawaii Conference.
Rumford, who has been writing and illustrating books for children since 1996, received several awards such as two Zolotow Awards, a Siebert Honor Award, two Jane Addams Peace Awards, and the Sugarman Award for American Biography.
The Hawai‘i State Library hosts events held by the Friends of the Hawai‘i State Library and the Hawai‘i State Public Library System.
