The Evolution of a Picture Book
The Evolution of a Picture Book: from idea to reality. Picture books are enjoyed by young children, older children, and even adults. Despite the seemingly simplistic storytelling, picture books are complicated and involve a lot of people to bring it to life. Author Janet Sumner Johnson will discuss the behind-the-scenes workings of creating a picture book from idea, through the submission process, to working with an editor and illustrator. If you've ever had questions such as whether an author needs to be (or know) an illustrator to get published, or how much input an author has on the images, you won't want to miss this presentation!
