Artist Talk by James E. Ransome

Join us for an informal artist talk by James E. Ransome during our closing reception. 

Illustrator of over 60 books, James E. Ransome has been named by the Children’s Book Council as one of 75 authors and illustrators everyone should know. Ransome has also received several Coretta Scott Honors for many of his other books as well as The Simon Wiesenthal Museum of Tolerance award, the NAACP Image Award for Illustration and is an ALA Notable Book recipient.
