Launch Pad

You’re invited to join Elizabeth Shefrin at an exhibit of her book illustrations, particularly of the illustrations of her new book, Once Upon a Bathtime, written by Vi Hughes and published by Tradewind.

Besides the sixteen brand new pieces, the show will include a few illustrations from Latkes (Bob Bossin, Nick Books 2007) and Abby’s Birds (Ellen Schwartz, Tradewind 2006), as well as some unpublished pieces. The show is named after the book, and is called Once Upon a Bathtime and Other Stories.

On Sunday morning, October 24, between 10 and 11:30 am, Elizabeth is holding a family picture book making workshop. She’s hoping for parents and young ones to work together to make up a story about dreams, illustrate it using the same cut paper collage technique she has used in her illustrations, and put it together into a small home-made book.

The cost of the workshop is $7 a person and anyone interested should preregister by October 20th.
