On Tuesday, 27 August 2013, Silence in the Library Publishing launched a Kickstarter for Bryan Young’s ground-breaking illustrated book A Children’s Illustrated History of Presidential Assassination.
A Children’s Illustrated History of Presidential Assassination is a beautifully illustrated book born of a child’s desire to learn and a father’s belief that gaining knowledge should be fun and uplifting. It is designed to educate, entertain, and enlighten children from ages 1 to 100.
A couple of years ago, while visiting Washington D.C. for a writer’s workshop, author Bryan Young visited Ford’s Theatre, the site of John Wilkes Booth’s assassination of President Abraham Lincoln. When he returned home, he showed his children the many pictures he had taken from his trip. To his delight and surprise, his daughter Scout was incredibly interested in the subject of Lincoln’s assassination, and Presidential assassinations in general.
After looking extensively for a book suitable for a child her age on the subject that would be both educational and engaging, Bryan came to the realization that no such book existed.
This book is the result of that quest. Beautifully illustrated by artist Erin Kubinek, this book brings the subject of Presidential assassination to life in a way that is sure to enlighten and entertain children and adults of all ages.
