Overcoming Challenges: A Program for Writers and Illustrators
Saturday, October 6, 2013, 10:00 – 3:30

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

Anna Dewdney lives in a very old house in Vermont. She has two daughters and three very muddy dogs. Anna is best known as the author/illustrator of the Llama Llama books, a series about the challenges of being a small person.

A lawyer by day and author/illustrator by night, Greg R. Fishbone is the author of two middle-grade novels: Penguins of Doom and Galaxy Games: The Challengers, the first book in a trilogy. Greg is also the NE-SCBWI webmaster.

Jeff Mack spent his early years in Upstate New York setting booby traps for his siblings and drawing monster comics on his math homework. Now in Western Massachusetts, he writes and draws children’s books full-time.

Nancy Poydar has illustrated more than 45 picture books and is the author of 16 titles. Before becoming an author -illustrator, Nancy was a classroom teacher for 14 years. Her influences include Little Lulu comic books and her grandchildren.
