Guest Illustrator at MHS Event

I've been invited to participate as a guest illustrator at the Maine Historical Society's annual birthday celebration of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. I'll be there for an hour or two illustrating a few scenes from a couple of his poems on a large easel for kids and families to watch the process! The drawings will then be displayed during the duration of the event while we all enjoy some other fun crafts, a reading, and of course, some birthday cake in honor of Mr. Longfellow.

My children's book, My Maine, will be on sale at the event and is also currently being sold in the Maine Historical Society's wonderful museum store. 

It will be a fun day, all are invited and the event is free! Hope to see you there! 

Longfellow was born in Portland, Maine, and studied at Bowdoin College. He was an American poet and educator whose works include "Paul Revere's Ride", The Song of Hiawatha, and "Evangeline".
