This past weekend marked another successful Kid Lit Salon event: Drawn to Spring! Several friends and I explored the offerings of the Harvard Museum of Natural History - and then later, the offerings of John Harvard's Brewery. We sketched life-size animal models and taxidermy specimens, chatted and caught up with one another, and then shared the morning's work over a meal. This was my first time visiting that particular museum and I could've easily spent several more hours there! We are definitely doing this event again in the future.
Huge thanks Jason Hart of Raspberry Productions for providing the idea and event logo, all of the talented New England illustrator-writers for attending, and my friend Diane for watching all my resident animals so my husband and I could make this day trip to Boston.
