As promised, here’s my interview with Selina Alko and Sean Qualls; Selina also let me know that she, Pat Cummings, and Greg Christie will be taking part in a multicultural literacy conference with Reach Out & Read at Scholastic in SOHO. From 8:30 – 11:30 am this Thursday, October 21.
Ok, so I now realize that it’s not easy to film things that are under glass…so I’m just going to post some photos I was able to pull off my not-so-hot film footage. These are *some* of my favorites, but they’re also the best images I could salvage so please don’t feel hurt if you’re an illustrator! If you’re in the tri-state area, do whatever you can to get over to the BPL to see this spectacular show before it closes in January…you can also watch a slideshow with pristine images here.
