The guest list includes Janell Cannon — the award-winning author/illustrator who created “Stellaluna”; Gerald McDermott — author/ illustrator whose vibrant picture books have received a Caldecott Medal, two Caldecott Honors, and many other awards; Brenda York, Theresa Vandenberg Donche and Annalu Boeretto — visual artists whose paintings are included in collections across the world.
