Creating Picture Books: From First Thought to Publication

Here's a unique opportunity for adult writers and illustrators who are interested in picture book projects.  Picture book writers Tammi Sauer, Carolyn Crimi, and Rachel Ruiz will each  talk about their latest project and how it came to fruition.  There will be an opportunity for audience Q and A, followed by a book signing. This event is co-sponsored by the North suburban chapter of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrates (SCBWI).
