Have David McLimans visit your school, library, or conference
David's third picture book, Big Turtle, will be published this October from Bloomsbury Walker. It is his first book that dives into folktales, with a graphic spin on a Huron creation tale. His first two books, the critically acclaimed Gone Wild and Gone Fishing, combined environmentalism with learning the alphabet and numbers. Kirkus Reviews called his work, "as informative as it is gorgeous." This Caldecott Honor-winning artist earned his MFA from Boston University and currently lives in Wisconsin, where he was born and raised. His unique artistic style captivates his audience and his presentations include sharing visual materials such as projected images, original art, and printed samples with the group.
Visits: David's presentations are geared towards K-6 students and college students but he varies his talk depending upon age level. His presentation includes visual materials such as projected images, original art, and printed samples. While he can give presentations that are talks only he prefers to give interactive presentations where students, with his help and instruction, create a project of their own. Fee: $1,200/day plus travel expenses.
