On this edition of Just One More Book!, Mark speaks with illustrator Laura Huliska-Beith about the inspiring over-the-top optimism of the 1950s, how a pair of roller blades and an obedience school drop-out influenced her children’s book illustration career and her 2007 snowflake, Three French Hens.
Laura’s feisty, festive snowflake is up for bids December 3-7, 2007.
Robert’s Snow: for Cancer’s Cure is an online auction of wooden snowflakes painted by participating children’s book illustrators. This annual event, which was started in 2004 by author Grace Lin and her husband Robert Mercer, has raised over $200,000 for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
Just One More Book! is one of many online children’s literature resources participating in the promotion of this year’s Robert’s Snow auction. Over the next few weeks we will be publishing interviews with participating illustrators and we’re hoping that you’ll find yourself bidding on the incredible art that’s available to you during this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
