Illustrator Visit!

EB WhiteE.B. Lewis met with grades 1-5. He shared childhood stories of life before he discovered his passion, art. A beloved uncle took him to Saturday morning art classes at Temple University for six years. He encouraged students to find what they love in life. He also shared the process he uses for illustrating picture books. We learned that the two young girls who were models for The Other Side have remained friends to this day! It was an amazing morning in the Haggerty Library.
