    The Conference of the Birds as Imagined by Peter Sis

    Bay Area - San Francisco Sunday - November 20, 2011     04:00 PM

    Celebrated Caldecott Honor-winning children’s book author and illustrator Peter Sís’s first book for adults is a gorgeous and uplifting adaptation of the classic twelfth-century Persian epic poem by the same name. THE CONFERENCE OF THE BIRDS speaks to what is meaningful and hopeful in our passage through life.

    This deeply felt adaptation tells the story of an epic flight of birds in search of the true king, Simorgh. Drawn from all species, the band of birds is led by the hoopoe. He promises that the voyage to the mountain of Kaf, where Simorgh lives, will be perilous and many birds resist, afraid of what they might encounter. Others perish during the passage through the seven valleys: quest, love, understanding, friendship, unity, amazement, and death.

    Those that continue reach the mountain to learn that Simorgh the king is, in fact, each of them and all of them. In this lyrical and richly illustrated story of love, faith, and the meaning of it all, Peter Sís shows the pain, and beauty, of the human journey.

    Born in Brno, in the former Czechoslovakia, in 1949, Peter Sís is an internationally acclaimed illustrator, author, and filmmaker. Most recently he published The Wall: Growing Up Behind the Iron Curtain, which was awarded the Robert F. Sibert Medal and was also named a Caldecott Honor Book. His other books are numerous and include Tibet Through the Red Box, Starry Messenger, The Tree of Life, and the three Madlenka tales. Sís was named a MacArthur Fellow in 2003. He is the author of twenty children’s books and a seven-time winner of the The New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Book of the Year.

    In THE CONFERENCE OF THE BIRDS, Peter Sís breathes new life into this foundational Sufi poem, revealing its profound lessons. Welcoming him to The Booksmith is a particular pleasure, and one we hope you won’t miss, along with the opportunity to have copies of this gorgeous book signed for all on your holiday list.


    Reserved seating available with the purchase of THE CONFERENCE OF THE BIRDS at The Booksmith beginning 10/27 (or advance order by phone, email, or website) while seats last.
