Story v. Art: The Making of a Children’s Picture Book

In this special seminar, author Desiree Cooper and fabrication artist Bec Sloane will discuss the evolution of their children’s book, Nothing Special. A Booklist starred selection, Nothing Special combines a poignant intergenerational buddy story with stunning, 3-D art. The author and illustrator will talk about their collaboration and strategic decisions they made along the way and how answer questions about the author to illustrator relationship. This is a great opportunity for any soon-to-be children’s book author and/or illustrator.
