The Hook of the Book
The hook is what pulls us in, what keeps us reading, and what remains with us after the last page is turned. This intensive will explore the hook of the book from many angles, and you will leave with ideas on how to improve your art and writing and make your work stand out in this ever-more-competitive field.
AUDIENCE: For editors, librarians, teachers, parents, and children.
ABOUT E. B. LEWIS:
“Artistrator” E. B. Lewis is a graduate of the Temple University Tyler School of Art and has illustrated sixty-five books for children. A member of The Society of Illustrators in New York City, he is the recipient of several Coretta Scott King Illustrator Awards, ALA Notable Book awards, and other honors including the Caldecott Honor for Coming on Home Soon, written by Jacqueline Woodson. Lewis is a master at identifying the emotion and story in text and showing it in the illustration.

He taught art in public school for twelve years, and continues to teach at the University of Arts in Philadelphia. He also privately mentors illustration students. No matter what level of mastery an artist has achieved, Lewis can help to push the craft high.
