Mini-Session: We loved last year’s session of video and discussion, and thanks to Advisory Committee member/videographer Dana Sullivan, we’ll have two more local illustrators sharing their favorite ILLUSTRATION TECHNIQUES in time-lapse video as well as in-person Q&A.
Main Program: FOOD LITERACY: CONNECTING GOOD EATS & GOOD READS with Philip Lee. As co-founder and former publisher of Lee & Low Books, Philip will speak on his new company, READERS to EATERS, with a mission to promote food literacy. He will discuss the need to build a new food culture, starting with a better understanding of what and how we eat, and how stories behind ethnic diversity plays an important role in our food dialogue. As an independent publisher for more than 20 years, Philip will address the challenges and opportunities that small and mid-sized publishers are facing as the industry evolves and how it impacts writers and illustrators.
