Vermont Author and Illustrator to Discuss Creative Process
Award-winning author and illustrator and Vermont resident David Macaulay will discuss current projects and challenges in his work in a talk at First Congregational Church in Manchester on April 3 at 7 p.m. His talk, ‘Life in the Studio,’ is part of the Vermont Humanities Council’s First Wednesdays lecture series and is free and open to the public. Talks in Manchester are hosted by Manchester Community Library. Macaulay’s books have sold millions of copies in the United States alone, and his work has been translated into a dozen languages. He has also garnered numerous awards including the Caldecott Medal and Honor Awards, the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award, the Christopher Award, an American Institute of Architects Medal, and the Washington Post-Children’s Book Guild Nonfiction Award. His many books include ‘Castle, Built to Last,’ ‘Cathedral,’ ‘The Way We Work,’ and most recently, ‘The Way Things Work Now,’ which includes new sections on the technology that most impacts our everyday lives. Superb design, magnificent illustrations and clearly presented information distinguish all of his books. A related exhibit of selected drawings and sketches from Macaulay’s books is on display through April 8 in the Upper Gallery at Manchester Community Library.
