Christian Robbins, the illustrator of Newbery winner Last Stop on Market Street, gave a Brief but Spectacular talk for PBS about making illustrations for children's materials. Really, it is about 2 minutes long and it will make your day better.
Raina Telegmeier, the author/illustrator of graphic novels Smile, Drama, Sisters, and the brand new Ghosts, is going to be in Minneapolis at the University of Minnesota's Cowles Auditorium at 6:30 pm on September 19, giving a talk and a book signing. More investment of time, but pretty exciting! Free, but registration is requested.
The Chippewa Valley Book Festival is coming up, too. Lots of inspiring authors for adults and children!
Finally, don't miss your chance to see Bill Konigsburg, author of Openly Straight and The Porcupine of Truth. He'll be at the YSS Luncheon at the WLA Conference on October 26. And then we'll have a chance to discuss his books and his talk at an informal setting in the evening. Our own Ashley Bieber (LEPMPL) was the brilliant person who coordinated this visit. How cool is that?
