夢幻午後：幾米在州大 A Dreamy Afternoon: Jimi @ SF State
The SF State Chinese Program is thrilled to present world-famous children’s book author Jimi who will visit the SF State campus on October 22, 2016! Jimi will deliver a public reading and meet with the San Francisco community.
Jimi 幾米 (English name: Jimmy Liao) is Taiwan’s most renowned children’s book author and illustrator. He is the author of over forty books, and his work adorns Taiwanese postal stamps and subway cards. More recently, Jimi’s status as one of the country’s most beloved artists was paid homage to when the Nangang subway station in Taipei was entirely decorated with images from his books. While his many books by way of their colorful illustrations or monochrome drawings take the reader on magical journeys through marvelous dreamscapes, his work also probes into themes of urban alienation, friendship, and our own mortality.
