Yuan Pan Publishes The Last Goodbye

Associate Professor of Art Yuan Pan’s book, The Last Goodbye, will be published by Green Writers Press May 15.

The Last Goodbye is a semi-autobiographical, children’s picture book, for all ages, that tells a story about loss and offers a nostalgic reminiscence of childhood told using richly illustrated charcoal drawings that have been reproduced in a deep sepia tone. The son sets off for boarding school over the years and later makes the long trip overseas to begin his career. Whether at the bus stop or at the airport, his father is always there to see him off on his journeys. When the son realizes he should spend more time with his father, he finds his father very ill and misses the opportunity to bid his father a final goodbye.

The Last Goodbye was chosen by an international jury as one of the eight finalists at the Silent Book Contest of the Bologna Children’s Book Fair in 2014, and was exhibited in Montereggio di Mulazzo and then in Milan, Italy.
