Drawn in Brooklyn

Yesterday three Ossining Public Library Children’s Librarians were lucky enough to make a trek to Brooklyn for a wonderful talk and exhibit. The exhibition, called Drawn in Brooklyn, “features the work of 34 illustrators who live and work in Brooklyn, from the most exciting newcomers in publishing to the legends of the business.”

Some of the illustrators represented include:
Sophie Blackall (Big Red Lollipop; What’s So Bad About Being an Only Child?)
Peter Brown (Children Make Terrible Pets; The Curious Garden)
Bryan Collier (Clemente!; Dave the Potter)
Leo & Diane Dillon (Mother Goose Numbers on the Loose; The People Could Fly)
Brian Floca (Ballet for Martha; Moonshot: The Flight of Apollo 11)
Betsy Lewin (Click, Clack, Moo: Cows that Type; Duck for President)
Brian Pinkney (Little Diva; Sit-In: How Four Friends Stood Up by Sitting Down)
Brian Selznick (The Invention of Hugo Cabret; The Houdini Box)
Paul O. Zelinsky (Dust Devil; Rapunzel)

We were also treated to a talk by author/illustrator Brian Floca, and a tour of the exhibition by library staff.
