2016 Miami Book Fair Poster

This year’s poster artist is also an ambassador!

Gene Luen Yang’s groundbreaking first book, American Born Chinese, won an Eisner Award, became the first graphic novel to be nominated for a National Book Award, and the first to win the American Library Association’s Printz Award. Yang followed up with Boxers & Saints, a two-volume graphic novel about the Boxer Rebellion, which was nominated for a National Book Award and won the L.A. Times Book Prize. Earlier this year, the Library of Congress, Every Child a Reader, and the Children’s Book Council, appointed Yang as the National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature. In September, he was awarded a  MacArthur Genius Grant.
