News from Artist Jennifer Merz:
I'm happy to say that I've been invited to be on a panel with and for Ed Young, Caldecott Medalist. He was my first teacher of children's book illustration and was the one who set me on the road of ripped-paper dummies and torn-paper collages!

The event will be held on Sunday, March 7th at 3 p.m., at the Hastings-on-Hudson Public Library, NY. The library writes it up as follows:

An event for adults... Ed Young will talk about the influence of Hastings and the Hudson River on his work and then a panel of illustrators, educators, and librarians will talk about the influence of Ed Young on other work. Reception follows. An online auction will begin March 7th to sell 2 original Ed Young artworks, with proceeds benefiting the library."
