Children’s Book Illustrator’s Show

Photographs from my book, Wolfsnail: A Backyard Predator, are hanging in a gallery at the Little Shop of Stories in Decatur, GA. I attended the opening last Friday and had a great time meeting fellow illustrators in the Southern Breeze region of the Society of Book Writers and Illustrators. The event (which we are hoping will happen annually) coincided with the Decatur Arts Festival. The attendance was terrific as you can see from Elizabeth Dulemba’s blog. Elizabeth organized the event and had help hanging it from Liz Conrad.

A friend of mine from graduate school days and her son came by to see the exhibit. I enjoyed reading Wolfsnail (and a few others) to my friend’s son. It was nice to have the event in a children’s book store because it was very kid-friendly.

My own family came by the next day to pick me up. Since the bookstore’s stock of Wolfsnail sold out during the opening on Friday night, I provided some more from my stock and signed them. It is so much fun to meet people who are interested in my book.

Some of my writer friends from SCBWI/Southern Breeze came by, too. It has meant so much to be a part of a talented, dedicated, and supportive group of people.
