Evolve, a Children’s Book for Adults with Author Jean-Pierre Weill, live from Israel

Thursday, June 30 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Free

In the follow up to his critically acclaimed first book, The Well of Being, Jean-Pierre Weill’s EVOLVE: A Children’s Book for Adults takes readers on a philosophical journey that explores the age-old question — who am I? Join us we unpack three foundational stories from the book of Genesis in the hopes of answering where we come from and where we might choose to go.

Jean-Pierre Weill is a painter and writer of picture-books for adults that explore philosophical and spiritual ideas. Weill was born in France and raised in New York, and he received his BA from St. John’s College, Annapolis, MD. Weill is the creator of vitreography, a unique mode of painting and drawing in 3-dimensional multi-level glass paintings; his work has sold in hundreds of galleries and museum outlets throughout the U.S., Europe, and Japan, and he has designed original works for Disney Art Editions, Inc., Warner Bros Co., and Coca-Cola, Inc. Weill published his first book, The Well of Being: A Children’s Book for Adults (Macmillan, 2013) to critical acclaim. Weill currently lives in Jerusalem.
