Latina writer of books for kids of all ages.

Was great to launch Paint Me a Story this afternoon.  I really enjoyed this collaboration with the library and am so happy that the exhibit will be on display next Friday at the Main Branch for First Fridays. Don’t miss it — or the free workshops that the Visual Arts Center will provide as an offshoot of the exhibit. Here are a few shots from our party. Lila, Joe, John: your work was so impressive.It was an honor and a pleasure to share it with new audiences.

Comments on: "Thanks for coming!" (2)

  1. Meg, this is such a fantastic project. The art work is just beautiful! And, to hear you talk about each of the illustrators was really special for everyone. As a city resident, I really thank you for working with our public library to bring these amazing works to us.

  2. Thanks for coming, Gigi. You’re a great friend to me (of course) but also to the whole literary community here in town. Really wonderful to have you join us for RPL’s maiden voyage into Dia De Los Libros celebrations.
