HUNTINGTON — The museum shop at the Huntington Museum of Art will host a book launch for “Through the Children’s Eyes: Exploring the Huntington Museum of Art” by South Point author Suzanne Alexander from 4-6 p.m. Tuesday.

Alexander, a longtime docent and former Museum Making Connections outreach teacher for the Huntington Museum of Art, will be on hand signing copies of the book, which will be for sale in the shop.

The book, which is published by Headline Books, is dedicated to the museum’s docents. Alexander considers the docents to be “gems of the museum who bring art alive to all who enter its doors.”

“It took a few years to bring all the ideas together. Then I submitted the finished manuscript to the award-winning independent publisher, Headline Books, and it was accepted for publication,” Alexander said. “I am thrilled with how the book turned out. Ashley Teets, the art director, and Lucas Kelly, the graphic designer, did an amazing job with the book.”

Alexander’s book also received the Gold Mom’s Choice Award for being the best in family-friendly media.

Refreshments will also be available at the book launch, and the Huntington Museum of Art is fully accessible.
