Film & 94th Birthday Celebration: I Know a Man . . . Ashley Bryan
HELP US CELEBRATE THIS MAINE TREASURE!
While Mr. Bryan is not able to be at Curtis for this event, we will celebrate his incredible life and contributions to literature, art and humanity with flare!
I Know a Man … Ashley Bryan by Richard Kane and Robert Shetterly is a film about this 93-year-old creative wonder who skips and jumps in his heart like a child (and turns 94 on July 13th!) Ashley is the poet/illustrator of over 50 published children’s books, and makes magical puppets and sea glass windows from found objects inspired by his African heritage. His life story and the art he makes from this wellspring of experience is an inspiration to people of all ages.
