Our next big event is right around the corner...join us this Thursday, March 14 from 6-9pm for a special book signing to celebrate the release of Jimmy Finds His Voice, written by Chapman University's own President Jim Doti and illustrated by the ever versitle Lisa Mertins. You may recall the duo from their 2010 release of A Christmas Adventure in Little Italy. The pair are at it again to bring Little Jimmy, his family, and his beloved dog Blackie to life. This special book signing will benefit the Communication Sciences and Disorders program within the College of Educational Studies at Chapman University. Click HERE for more details!
And, just in case you haven't had a full fix of children's book illustration, we have photos to share with you from our 21st Annual Children's Book Illustration Show! Just follow this link to our Facebook album to see all the fun that was had way back in December.
