Picture Book Panel: Through the Ages for All Ages

May 19 2013 5:00 pm
May 19 2013 6:00 pm

Illustrated books have a special way of enriching children’s experience with the printed page, introducing them to both reading and art. Leonard Marcus, author and editor of many books including Show Me a Story and Minders of Make-Believe, will moderate a panel about the history and future of picture books. Joining the discussion are Neal Porter, editorial director of Neal Porter Books (an imprint of Roaring Brook Press); authors Mac Barnett, Meg Medina, and Jon Scieszka; and author/illustrators Christopher Myers and Laura Vaccaro Seeger. This panel is designed specifically for parents, librarians, teachers, and aspiring authors and illustrators.

A light reception will follow the event and signing. Prints by picture book artists will be available for purchase.
