The MAZZA Museum Exhibit in Michigan, 2017

The MAZZA Museum Exhibit in Michigan, 2017

So excited! The MAZZA is coming to the Saline District Library, Saline, Michigan. The MAZZA Museum houses “the world’s first and most diverse collection of original artwork by children’s book illustrators. Through these select pieces you will encounter the creative processes behind picture book art — cover work, color separations, editorial notes on preliminaries, character development sketches, preparatory storyboards, and much more.”

June 3rd through Aug. 26th. Make it a destination this summer!

I’m certainly going!
(And the library itself is a small gem.)

Jean Alicia Elster, Ruth Behar and Jack Cheng will talk about writing their middle-grade novels. We’d love to see you all there! Please spread the word! Thanks!
