Keepin’ it Real! Researching for Authenticity in Picture Books webinar
Saturday, January 26, 10:00 a.m. (Central)

Visual story teller E.B. Lewis will share how he uses historical research to ensure authenticity and portray the rich cultural heritage in his fiction and nonfiction picture books. The subjects of his stories range from the boyhood of Civil Rights leader John Lewis to the young girl Ada Ruth who awaits her mama’s return from her job in Chicago. E.B. will also discuss his use of models to “paint without fear” and masterfully capture the expression, gesture, and personality of his characters.

Hosted by SCBWI Nebraska. Please see the registration page for more information.
