It’s Been A Great Year for EPA Illustrators! by Virginia Law Manning

As the year comes to a close, let’s take some time to celebrate our members’ accomplishments! Illustrators, I apologize if I missed your news, and I definitely don’t want to do it again, so please send your future illustrator related announcements to Virginia Law Manning, EPA Illustrator Coordinator, at  vl_law@yahoo. Thank you!

Congratulations to Eastern PA illustrators who had new books on the shelves this year, including:

My Special Word, by Dwight Smith with our EPA Co-RA Alison Green Myers, and illustrated by EPA logo-contest-winner Beth Bogert! We’ll be hearing more about this amazing book on the blog soon!
