Twin Cities Picture Book Salon!

It’s a FREE community gathering of picture book writers of all levels who want to support one another’s new endeavors and generate energy around picture book writing in the Twin Cities.  Let’s gather to mix and mingle, keep each other up-to-date with news and announcements, share resources, discuss issues relevant to modern picture book writing.

Bring your self and your enthusiasm for picture book writing, and, if you want, your book, business cards, flyers, brochures, etc.  Please pass this invitation on to others who you think might be interested–my contact list is far from complete!  Find our facebook group here.

(Adults only, please. 16+)

WHERE:             Room 303, The Loft Literary Center @ Open Book*

WHEN:               Monday, August 7th, 7-8:30 pm

Snacks and beverages provided.  Suggested donation $5.  Please RSVP: mollybethgriffin@gmail.com or on Facebook.

At our August Salon, author/illustrator Rick Chrustowski (BEE DANCE, MY LITTLE FOX) will talk about drawing inspiration from the outdoors to create engaging picture books for young readers. He’ll share process materials, discuss the evolution of a book over time, and answer your questions. www.rickchrustowski.com
