2018 READING PICTURES: The Artist’s Voice and Vocabulary in Picture Books
What a unique and utterly fun event! I was thrilled to see so many familiar faces and meet some new friends, too. And of course, what a treat to share the stage with the fabulous Susan Roth and John Parra. Much thanks to Cecilia Yung, Laurent Lynn, and Isabelle Warren Lynch for organizing an amazing event!

Below is a description of the event:
Join us for an in-depth exploration of the annual Original Art exhibit, featuring the very best illustration in books for children this year.
Art directors Laurent Linn (Simon & Schuster), Isabelle Warren Lynch (Random House Children’s Books) and Cecilia Yung (Penguin Books for Young Readers) will lead a gallery talk of this spectacular show for an up-close examination of the works on view.
Illustrators Susan Roth, John Parra and Laura Vaccaro Seeger will share their behind-the-scenes decisions and discuss and/or demonstrate their creative processes in the intimate gallery setting of the Society of Illustrators.
The day will conclude with a book signing and an opportunity to chat with your colleagues, the illustrators, and the art directors over a delicious buffet dinner.
