Back-to-School Wisdom

Posted by Pam Jenkins on September 4th, 2017

Another children’s librarian sent me this link to a recent New York Times article.

Parents and kids will enjoy reading about how the school experiences of some of their favorite authors and illustrators later influenced their work.

The article also contains links to full video interviews and drawing sessions of the creators.
