Visiting Illustrator




We are thrilled to welcome artist and children’s book illustrator, Michael P. White, to Vanderlyn on Tuesday, March 14th!  

Mr. White has illustrated four children’s books:  The Library Dragon, Return of the Library Dragon, The Secret of Old Zeb and Harriet’s Horrible Hair Day.  

If you are not familiar with Mr. White’s work, please consider reading and looking at the illustrations of some of these wonderful stories with your children before his visit! 

Mr. White's visit is courtesy of your generous Annual Fund donations.
