An Uncommon Collaboration
Quarter Peeled Oranges: A Poet and Illustrator Collaboration
Dr. Bruce Gillett, author of Quarter Peeled Oranges
Bill Needs, illustrator of Quarter Peeled Oranges
Mr. Needs will discuss how life events for the author and artist led to the creation of a book by a couple strangers with no practical experience to the process they would undertake. Dr. Gillett will also read a few poems from the collection. Some illustrations from the book will be on display in the Library's Second Floor Gallery.
Questions and Answers will be encouraged throughout the presentation. Books will be available for sale and signing. Every penny is donated to Susan G. Komen for the Cure – Atlanta Affiliate. Six books will pay for one mammogram for a woman who cannot afford to pay for the test; it also funds other services for breast cancer prevention, detection, treatment and research.
Refreshments will be served.
