Event date: 
Saturday, November 17, 2012 - 2:00pm to 3:30pm

DemiThe award-winning author/illustrator, Demi has produced more than one hundred children's books, including biographies of Jesus, Buddha, and the Dalai Lama, as well as folktales such as The Empty Pot and Liang and the Magic Paintbrush. She'll be at Hicklebee's Saturday, November 17 at 2:00 to share her newest biography, The Great Voyages of Zheng He.

Over 600 hundred years ago, Emperor Zhu Di of China decided to build the greatest naval fleet the world had ever seen to befriend and trade with countries throughout Asia and Africa. The admiral of this diplomatic and treasure-gathering fleet was a brilliant and peace-loving man named Zheng He. In this account of Zheng He's amazing life, Demi recreates the grandeur and enthusiasm of these naval voyages with her signature detailed artwork. She introduces us to this larger-than-life figure who dreamed of a world where the best of mankind was peacefully shared and celebrated, a world of intellectual growth and religious tolerance, and a world of everlasting, worldwide peace.
