Janet Johnson: The Evolution of a Picture Book

Brigham City Library: Brigham City Library is happy to host Janet Johnson on Tuesday, October 22nd at 7pm. Johnson will be presenting The Evolution of a Picture Book: from idea to reality. Picture books are enjoyed by young children, older children, and even adults. Despite the seemingly simplistic storytelling, picture books are complicated and involve a lot of people to bring it to life. Author Janet Sumner Johnson will discuss the behind-the-scenes workings of creating a picture book from idea, through the submission process, to working with an editor and illustrator. If you've ever had questions such as whether an author needs to be (or know) an illustrator to get published, or how much input an author has on the images, you won't want to miss this presentation! Janet Sumner Johnson lives in Logan, Utah with her husband and three kids. She sings in the shower, attends dance parties in her kitchen, and ruthlessly beats her kids at card games. Though her full-time occupation as evil tyrant/benevolent dictator (aka mom) takes most of her time, she sneaks in writing at night when her inner funny bone is fully unleashed. She is the author of the middle grade book The Last Great Adventure of the PB&J Society (Capstone, 2016), and the soon-to-be-released picture book Help Wanted: Must Love Books (Capstone, March 2020). You can learn more about her at her website: janetsumnerjohnson.com. This event is brought to you by Brigham City Library.
