Our October  BookFest 2017  featured some of the most beloved names in American children’s book illustration.  As is our custom, our dear guests  were asked to leave a picture on our library walls.

Below are photos of works in progress and final photos by David Wiesner,  Don Tate, Barbara Lehman, Jerry Pinkney and Eric Velasquez.  Come on by and enjoy our visual feast!
