Author Panel: Finding the ARC in Facts and Fiction
Moderator: Susannah Richards
Sarah S. Brannen is the award-winning illustrator of over fifteen books for children. She is the author and illustrator of Madame Martine (Albert Whitman & Co.) and Uncle Bobby's Wedding (G. P. Putnam's Sons). Sarah also illustrated Feathers: Not Just For Flying, by Melissa Stewart, the 2014 Cybils winner, John Burroughs Riverby Award winner and an ALA notable book; At Home in her Tomb, A Junior Library Guild selection; and many other books. Forthcoming books include Madame Martine Breaks the Rules (Whitman, fall 2015).
Her books have been featured in Scholastic book fairs, on state lists, and in major magazines. Her books have gotten her on the radio, TV, and have been featured in newspapers—which is not as exciting as you might think, but was still pretty cool.
Erin has two young kids at home, so she writes most of her books in her local coffee shop or a local library. She’s also an associate professor of Liberal Arts at Montserrat College of Art in Beverly, Massachusetts. When she’s not writing or teaching, she’s having dance parties with her kids, spending time with her husband, or managing the expectations of their disgruntled family dog.
