Event Details

children's book doctor illustration by Diana Toledano

What makes a great picture book? Let’s find out together! We’ll dissect our favorite picture books, focusing each time on a different angle. 

 

Illustrators Charlotte Cheng and Diana Toledano lead this workshop/book club where all participants come to learn from each other.


This is the perfect event for author/illustrators looking forward to meet some colleagues, discover new books, and learn more about the craft. Authors interested in illustration, and illustrators interested in writing are also welcome.

 

This Month's Topic is:  PICTURE BOOKS YOU CAN'T PUT DOWN


SPECIAL GUEST!! This month, our special guest Jennifer March Soloway from Andrea Brown Literary Agency will be co-hosting the event with us as she shares her favorite picture books that she can't put down! https://www.andreabrownlit.com

 

Things to Note:

-Feel free to bring a book from your personal collection, but remember, a good surgeon doesn’t have a relationship with the patient. In other words, please do not bring your own work to discuss.

-The people at the Booksmith are super kind letting us host our meetings there, but they won’t be giving us any special treatment… You can politely ask them to carry your books or host your author event, just be aware that the answer might be “no”.


Space is limited, so sign up soon!

This is a monthly SCBWI Member-Hosted Event.

PICTURE BOOK SURGERY is a workshop/book club where all participants learn from each other. We get together to dissect our favorite picture books, and to discover new ones.

Charlotte & Diana are the two Bay Area illustrators behind this event. They are members of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), and in their free time they organize Kid Lit events in San Francisco.

 

 

CHARLOTTE CHENG likes to draw on walls, sidewalks, faces, and once in a while, the good old traditional piece of paper. Her illustrated picture books,  A Moment in Time and Silly McGilly, have gained media recognition and garnered multiple awards. 

You can see more of her work at: www.charlotteillustrations.com

 

DIANA (Dee-Anna) TOLEDANO is a Pisces with curly hair, glasses and a bit of an accent. She grew up in Madrid, where she studied Art History and Illustration. Diana has been published in the US and internationally, and her designs have been sold in retail stores all over the world. In addition to writing and drawing, she also teaches in museums.
