“We continue to be so encouraged and very proud of the quality of work produced by local writers and illustrators. We count it a privilege to be given the opportunity to sit on this panel and be delightfully treated to strong imaginings, adept minds, thought-provoking insights and observations, and portrayals of beauty all captured within the confines of seemingly naive book covers. We are hopeful and look forward to an even richer and more enticing world of children’s literature in the coming years ahead!”
