From Twinkle to Birth: The Debut Journeys of Two Author/Illustrators

  • Rockridge Branch Public Library 5366 College Ave. Oakland, CA 94618 (map)

Tony Piedra and Cindy Derby both won prizes at the 2014 SCBWI conference in LA. Now they reunite to tell the tale of their respective journeys from that stage to the publication of their first book! Tony is a digital artist, Cindy works traditionally. Both have great tidbits to share on very different publishing experiences. Let these delightful fellow members give you an idea of what to expect, or lend a new perspective on your own publishing process. You'll laugh, and you'll leave with a good dose of reality and hope.
