Peter Brown: Writing With Pictures

Peter Brown has always loved using words and pictures to tell stories. And when he took several children’s book classes while studying illustration at Art Center College of Design, he knew that he had found his calling.

Since then, Peter has published over a dozen books for children. His books have earned him numerous honors, including a Caldecott Honor, two E.B. White Awards, a New York Times Best Illustrated Book award, a Children’s Choice Award for Illustrator of the Year, and five NY Times bestsellers. His titles include My Teacher Is a Monster! (No, I Am Not.), Mr. Tiger Goes Wild, Creepy Carrots!, Children Make Terrible Pets, and The Curious Garden.

The lecture will take place March 30th, 2016 at 5:30 pm, in Andersen Library, Room 120.
