Illustrators at Books by the Banks October 20th

Duke Ellington:The Piano {Prince and his Orchestra
There are a lot of great illustrators at Books by the Banks this year, but I just found out that Caldecott winner Brian Pinkney will be there.

"Brian Pinkney’s work as a children’s book illustrator and fine artist is known worldwide. He has illustrated numerous books for children, including two Caldecott Honor Books, The Faithful Friend by Robert D. San Souci and Duke Ellington by Andrea Davis Pinkney, his wife and frequent collaborator; and Alvin Ailey, a Parenting Publication Gold medal winner, also authored by Andrea."

This is in addition to many others at the show: Jeffery Ebbeler, Will Hillenbrand, Loren Long,  Marlene Steele. Full list here:
