Candlewick Workshops: Secrets of Picture Books NEELA VASWANI at the 5th Maine Peaks Island

  • Peaks Island 5th Maine Regiment Museum 45 Seashore Avenue Peaks Island, ME, 04108 United States (map)

This is My Eye

Neela Vaswani is multi-faceted; an education activist in the US and India, she has written award-winning short stories, memoir, middle-grade fiction, won a Grammy and an Audie for audiobook narration.  Most recently she has written and illustrated the children’s picture book, This is My Eye. Using photography from a child’s point of view to tell a New York story, Neela’s particular insight surprises and delights. Look at the world through Neela’s eye and learn how to combine photos into a narrative that tells your own story.

Be inspired to see your world in a new way! Bring a camera/phone and join in as Neela demos her creative process. A book signing will follow her presentation.
