Picture Me. Picture You.
As part of Candlewick's 20th-anniversary celebration, authors and illustrators created short videos. This is my contribution. A tribute to "my" very first books: The Audubon Nature Program, a set of black & white paperbacks that arrived in the mail. Each featured a different ecosystem or animal group as well as a large sheet of full-color stamps to lick and stick onto the pages' empty boxes. Yes, the first books I considered mine involved licking and sticking. Words came later.
I'm a collector. I keep things. Things I find. Things I find out...
Author visits, residences, professional development, readings, manuscript consultation and editing—you name it. Happy to hear from you.
