Dilys Evans to Speak
The Main Library of the Santa Fe Public Library, 145 Washington Avenue, will host author Dilys Evans on Wednesday, June 18 at 7:00 p.m. in the Community Room.
Evans is the author of Show and Tell, which explores the fine art of children’s book illustration. Evans worked as an artist’s representative for the last 30 years, representing such major illustrators as David Wiesner, Harry Bliss, Hilary Knight and Brian Selznick.
Evans has seen the children’s book industry grow steadily for 20 years, but realized there was a need to support illustrators and bring their work to the forefront. Evans has been an art director of Cricket magazine and contributed articles to The Horn Book, Publisher’s Weekly and School Library Journal. She was awarded the Arthur William Brown Achievement Award by the Society of Illustratiors.
The program is free and open to the public.
