Preregister for each TNL event, $8 for members and $10 for nonmembers by Sept. 17th for this month. 3. Register at the door and pay $10 for members and $12 for nonmembers after Sept. 17th. Topic: Picturebook Polka: the dance of words and images How do we know which words are essential to tell our stories? How can we create illustrations that expand on the story instead of just repeating in pictures what is already written in words? And most importantly, how can the two dance together to reveal the heart of the story? In this workshop, we will look at examples of books that attain this balance and those that miss the mark. Covering issues for both PB writers and PB illustrators (and for those who do both.) https://oregon.
