We are excited to bring Jim LaMarche to the library on Tuesday, Oct. 2nd, at 6pm. Jim is an internationally-known children’s book illustrator known for such works as The Raft, Rainbabies, and Little Oh. He is originally from Kewaskum and, having grown up here, has often cited the environment of woods and water as inspiration for his works. Both of his parents were teachers in local schools and his mother is still very active in the Kewaskum Bookies monthly book club.
Mr. LaMarche’s illustrations have been called “lovely,” “captivating,” and “exquisitely rendered”–to which we add “full of awesome.” Come out and show your support for local art, local artists, and beautiful paintings!
