G is for Gibbes: A Museum ABC Book Reading, 2pm
Join us in the Gibbes Museum Store for a special reading with the author of our brand new publication G is for Gibbes: A Museum ABC Book, which will go on sale starting December 7.

Author Cathy Jenrette will read our new children's book entitled G is for Gibbes. Inspired by the Gibbes, this illustrated ABC book introduces readers to art and terminology encountered during a museum journey. G is for Gibbes engages readers with works of art from the Gibbes Museum’s permanent collection, as well as broader art terms such as abstract art, colors, impressionism, drawing, and landscape. The book also introduces readers to less familiar terms such as miniature portraits and restoration. G is for Gibbes allows children to experience the joy of visiting an art museum through the eyes of the Gibbes Gator and learn to love the alphabet in a whole new way.


**Professional photographs may be used by the Gibbes for promotional use for future events both in print media and online.
