Meet Award-Winning Children's Author March 13 at Farmington Library
A special endowment funds the program featuring children's book author and illustrator Janet Stevens.
Award-winning children’s picture book author and illustrator Janet Stevens will speak March 13, 7 p.m., at the Farmington Community Library Farmington branch in downtown Farmington.
For more than 30 years, Stevens has created such appealing books as The Little Red Pen, Tops and Bottoms, Cook-a-Doodle-Doo!, and The Great Fuzz Frenzy, which interest readers of all ages who appreciate clever stories and expressive illustrations, especially of animals. Her drawings of pens-in-distress, lazy bears, determined roosters, and crazed prairie dogs, are distinctive and humorous.
Stevens plans to describe the process of making a book from concept to finished art, explain where ideas come from, preview current projects and inspire people to “read more, write more, and draw all the time!”.
If time allows, Stevens will also use audience participation to create a large book character and its story.
This free event is for all ages, with no registration required. This program is funded by an endowment in memory of Barbara Novatis and her husband John. They believed in the power of author programs to support reading, writing, illustrating, and learning.
