Join us for an in-depth exploration of the annual Original Art exhibit, featuring the very best illustration in books for children this year.
Art directors Laurent Linn (Simon & Schuster), Lily Malcom (Dial Books for Young Readers) and Cecilia Yung (G. P. Putnam’s Sons and Nancy Paulsen Books) will lead a gallery talk of this spectacular show for an up-close examination of the works on view.
Illustrators Brian Pinkney, Eliza Wheeler and William Low will share their behind-the-scenes decisions, and discuss and demonstrate their creative processes in the intimate gallery setting of the Society of Illustrators.
The day will conclude with a book signing and an opportunity to chat with your colleagues, the illustrators, and the art directors over a delicious buffet dinner.
