LECTURE ON ILLUSTRATION: SEPTEMBER 24

For those who live near the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, the Museum was kind enough to invite me to come present my views on illustration.

The museum is one of the premier resources for promoting "the rich visual legacy of American illustration art," so you can imagine how surprised I was to receive the invitation.

My talk is scheduled for next weekend, on September 24th, from 1:30 to 2:30.  Later in the same day, illustrator David Macaulay (the Museum's 2011 Artist Laureate) will speak about his work.

I'm thinking of making the drive. Are you the "poetry and storytelling" session at 1:00?

Thanks, all. I don't know what possessed the good folks at the Rockwell Museum, but let's hope they don't regret this. It's my first time out from behind the veil. This should be fun.

Laurie Norton Moffatt-- Thanks, Laurie, to you and all your talented team for inviting me up and giving me such a warm reception. The Norman Rockwell Museum is a splendid institution and I was very impressed by all the programs you have lined up. I will visit again soon and I would recommend that others who love illustrations do the same.

Tom and others-- Thanks for your kind good wishes.
