Children's Author Panel: Picture Book Power!

Annie Bloom's welcomes this panel of five local picture book authors.

Judi Gardiner, well loved school librarian for over 20 years, will be talking with children's book authors: Debra Bartsch, Gretchen McLellan, Trudy Ludwig, Carolyn Conahan, and Jane Kurtz.

Bartsch is the author of Crow Spirit, an unusual book about loss, family and spirit. McLellan's Button and Bundle is the tender story about two best friends who must move away from each other. Ludwig is the author of Quiet Please, Owen McPhee!, the story of a boy who won't stop talking--until he gets laryngitis and learns to listen. Conahan is the illustrator of Stubby the Fearless Squid, a sweet and fun and clever story about accepting yourself for who you are and being brave. Kurtz's What Do They Do with All That Poo? is a zany, fact-filled romp that explores zoo poo.
