Presenters: David Small, Sarah Stewart
Moderator: Susan Capaldi
Sarah Stewart and David Small are two of the most beloved and recognized names in the last half-century of children’s picture book publishing. Their collaborative works, as well as David’s independent graphic works, have been featured on countless best seller lists and have received such recognition as to be named Caldecott Honor titles (The Library and The Gardener) and National Book Award finalists (Stitches). The Harbor Springs Festival of the Book is honored for the rare opportunity to discuss not only the couple’s most recent project (This Book of Mine) and David’s latest graphic novel (Home After Dark), but to also sneak a glimpse of how their personal-professional relationship has created some of the most cherished stories for readers young and old.
