APPLETON – A smile often comes to a person’s face when they remember their favorite childhood books. The genre of children’s books is varied, colorful and fun. Often, these books engage children’s creative minds by using quirky, relatable characters and stories to share important life lessons and communicate meaningful messages. Have you ever thought of writing a children’s book? Maybe you love to draw and have great illustrations that crave a story to go with them?
The Appleton Library, 2916 Sennebec Road, welcomes Catherine Gorski O’Connor, author and illustrator of children’s books, on Tuesday, October 11 at 6:30 p.m. O’Connor presents the creative and practical process of writing and illustrating books for children. O’Connor lives in Appleton and has written and illustrated ‘I Love My Socks’, ‘The Snowman Choir’ and most recently ‘The Bears’ Halloween Ball’. This free conference is a continuation of “Tuesday Titles”, focusing on local artists and authors sharing their work and stories through presentations held in the library meeting room.
