5:00pm – 6:30pm EST

An Exclusive Behind The Scenes Interview with Picture Book Author-Illustrator, Cale Atkinson!

We hear a lot about how to write a picture book manuscript OR how to illustrate a picture book manuscript. What we don’t hear a lot about is how to create the manuscript AND the illustrations for a picture book. This is a very individual process that will have a different flow for each creator. In this interview, we will get a lucky glimpse behind the scenes of a prolific artist and story teller.
