A LIVE All-Star Bonus Mega Special Picture Book Maker Episode: Kuo, Cordell, Pizzoli, Santat, Collier

Picture Book Panel

L to R: Julia Kuo, Matthew Cordell, Greg Pizzoli, Travis Jonker, Dan Santat, Bryan Collier.

Travis: This was fun.

At the American Library Association Annual Conference in Chicago this past summer, I moderated an all-star panel of picture book makers – Julia Kuo, Matthew Cordell, Greg Pizzoli, Dan Santat, and Bryan Collier. It was a blast.

I’m pleased to say we recorded the whole thing. It’s full of humor, wisdom, snack recommendations, Amazon drone deliveries – you know, the sort of insight into children’s literature that only a panel of pros can deliver.

We hope you enjoy the show. Shout-out to EPIC! Books for Kids for sponsoring this episode.
