The Making of And I Paint It: Henriette Wyeth’s World
Join author Beth Kephart and illustrator Amy June Bates, the award-winning team who produced the forthcoming And I Paint It: Henriette Wyeth’s World (to be released on May 18, 2021), for an inspiring conversation about the making of this new picture book that celebrates family, creativity and nature. Both women will share their strong personal connections to the book’s themes: Bates’ childhood experiences painting with her artist father and Kephart’s life-changing trip to New Mexico to discover Henriette Wyeth’s art and life. Kephart will also discuss her recently-published memoir, Wife|Daughter|Self. Signed copies of both books may be ordered through Brandywine’s Museum Shop.
This program will be held on Zoom and is free with registration.
