Children’s author/illustrator to appear at Anderson-Lee Library on Saturday

SILVER CREEK – The Friends of the Anderson-Lee Library will host Buffalo author/illus-trator Jane Marinsky for two programs on Saturday.

The first program, “Make Faces with Jane Marinsky,” will begin at 11 a.m., and is intended for children ages 5 and up.

The second program, “How to Get Your Book Published and Other Stories,” will begin at 1 p.m. and is recommended for adults and high school students.

Marinsky is the illustrator of the children’s book, “The Goat-Faced Girl,” a retelling of an Italian folktale which received a starred review from Publishers Weekly. She is the author/illustrator of “Just Perfect,” a picture story book for younger readers. Marinksy was an editorial illustrator for the Washington Post, New York Magazine, and the American Bar Association. She taught illustration at Daemen College in Amherst, N.Y. for 16 years.

For the 11 a.m. program, Marinsky will read the “Goat-Faced Girl,” and take children into the world of book making. They will see the process starting from the typed manuscript and thumbnail drawings to final paintings. Then they will do a craft that will turn them into goat-faced girls and boys. Parents are encouraged to come. Attendance is limited to 20 children, and pre-registration is required by calling the library at 934-3468.

The program for adults and high school students begins at 1 p.m. Participants will learn the process that Marinsky went through to find a publisher for her children’s book, from manuscript, thumbnails, sale of the book to a highly respected publisher, and final paintings. No pre-registration is required for this program.

Marinsky’s children’s books will be available for purchase at the events. For more information about these programs, call 934-3468.
