Overcoming Challenges: A Program for Writers, Illustrators, and Educators
Saturday, October 1, 2011, 10:00 – 3:30

Four children’s book creators participate in a two-part program that addresses the challenges they face as writers and illustrators. A book sale and signing will round out the day.

Jacqueline Davies has written four middle-grade novels and three picture books. Her newest title, The Lemonade Crime is a sequel to The Lemonade War, which was a Massachusetts Book Award Honor winner.

Newbery Honor-winning author Kathryn Lasky is both prolific and versatile. Her more than one hundreds books for children include nonfiction and picture books as well as historical fiction and fantasy novels.

During her celebrated career, children’ s book author Lois Lowry has explored such complex issues as racism, terminal illness, and the Holocaust. She won the Newbery Medal in 1990 for Number the Stars and again in 1994 for The Giver.

Billl Thomson has illustrated three picture books and is the creator of the award-winning
wordless picture book Chalk.
