Non Fiction Panel at Books of Wonder

Last week was exciting because I not only got to meet Kathryn Gibbs Davis, the author of Mr. Ferris And His Wheel, but I also spoke on a panel for non fiction picture books at Books of Wonder.

Kathryn and I met for the first time on Friday at the Society of Illustrators and traded stories of our trials we went through in the making of our book at a nearby diner.The following Sunday, Kathryn and I talked about our process again with a non fiction panel of other talented authors and illustrators specializing in non fiction at Books of Wonder.

It was great to hear about the extreme level of research that those authors and illustrators would go to in order to bring accuracy to their books. After the panel discussion, I found a new admiration in my peers whose love for writing and making art equalled their passion for science and historical figures.
