About the presenters:
Salley Mavor won the 2011 Golden Kite for her book "Pocket Full of Posies." The book features unique and fanciful scenes in relief, much like miniature, shallow stage sets, with figures imposed on embellished fabric backgrounds. Her work is decorative and detailed, full of patterns from nature and found objects, all sewn together by hand with a needle and thread. Salley studied at Rhode Island School of Design and lives on Cape Cod. In her Golden Kite acceptance speech she said, "Since my first book, THE WAY HOME, was published 20 years ago, I've felt like an outsider paddling upstream—with a needle and thimble in a stream of watercolors. Now I feel I'm floating down a stream of possibilities."
Carol Goldenberg has designed many award-winning books for children, including five Caldecott medal winners. A graduate of The Rhode Island School of Design, Carol has been Art Director for Houghton Mifflin Juvenile Books and for Clarion Books in New York.
