John Bemelmans Marciano appears at the 2011 National Book Festival.
Speaker Biography: John Bemelmans Marciano says that "it really, really helped that my grandfather, Ludwig Bemelmans, had created the Madeline books and left a story unfinished for me to work on." "Madeline at the White House" is the latest book Marciano has written about the smallest of 12 girls -- and only redhead -- who lives "in an old house in Paris that was covered in vines." Other books by Marciano include "Toponymity: An Atlas of Words" and "Aponyponymous: The Forgotten People Behind Everyday Words."
