A few pics from Sunday’s Children’s Book Fest at Nassau County Museum of Art. The festival was only one day, but PICTURE THIS! The Art of Children’s Books is on til Jan 12, 2020 https://nassaumuseum.org/exhibition/
my table buddy, Victoria Cossack, illustrator/writer of GUS AND THE GREATEST CATCH OF ALL
So this is what our table looked like at the end of yesterday. Some of our characters slipped out of our books. At center, Turtle Gobugi met some of Fisherman Gus’s piscine friends (as well as a dog, some sharks, unicorns and other fish and turtles who were in town for the day)
Back row: Brian Floca, John Parra, Tim Miller, Mike Curato, Cecilia Ruiz, Mika Song, Paul O. Zelinsky. Front row: Stephanie Graegin, Isabel Roxas, Colleen Kong-Savage, Aram Kim, Gilbert Ford, Victoria Cossack, David Ezra Stein.
How often does a fledgling kidlit illustrator get to commute back to the city with this many kidlit stars ALL in the SAME TRAIN CAR??? Swoon!
