What's it like being a children’s book illustrator?

Here is an interview I did for SCHOOLISM
Thank you, Bobby Chiu for your thoughtful questions.



Here am I in my Jackie trench coat (well at least I was trying!) and the WHEN JACKIE SAVED GRAND CENTRAL book on my most recent visit to the always inspiring Grand Central Station in New York. Thank you to everybody who made it possible that we all can continue to enjoy this truly beautiful historic building.



Turn the Page! Children's Fairyland EVENT

I will be at the Festival together with a number of beloved Children's Books Creators from the Bay Area! You can find me at the Meet and Greet Table from 1:30-2:40 on Saturday, May 6. I'll bring some art, doodles and examples of my writing process. You have a chance to ask me questions and I will be signing books!

WHEN JACKIE SAVED GRAND CENTRAL

The True Story of Jacqueline Kennedy's Fight for an American Icon
The little-known true story of Jackie Kennedy’s role in saving New York City’s Grand Central Terminal is revealed in this dramatic and beautiful picture book. From letter-writing campaigns all the way to the Supreme Court, this book celebrates winning in the face of immeasurable odds and how ONE PERSON CAN MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE.
What a timely publication (March 7, 2017) for this non-fiction picture book about a strong female activist, who helped to shape our world by not giving up.
Written (pitch- perfect!) by Natasha Wing, illustrated by Alexandra Boiger (me!), published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. I hope you'll enjoy this fascinating story.
