Forsyth Writes Together: Picture Book Journey: Writing/Illustrating to Production
April 26, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Are you interested in writing or illustrating children’s picture books? How do you go from an idea to creation to publication?
Author Chris Jespersen and illustrator Josie Toney will discuss their journey creating Georgia ABCs: A Finding Milo Book. Published by University of North Georgia Press, the book takes readers on a delightful trek across the state accompanied by curious canine Milo. You might even meet Milo in person!
Author Chris Jespersen is a long-time admirer and reader of children’s books, a passion that sparked when his two sons were learning to read. He is also a professor of American diplomatic history in the Department of History, Anthropology, and Philosophy at the University of North Georgia where he also serves as dean of the College of Arts & Letters.
Illustrator Josie Toney is a self-taught artist with a surrealistic and whimsical style. She creates in a variety of mediums including acrylic, pastels, watercolor, marker, color pencil, and graphite. She resides in Cleveland, Georgia, where she draws and paints alongside her family, four dogs, one cat, and several chickens.
