In partnership with the Lake George Art Project's "Story Time" exhibit featuring children's book illustrators Bruce Hiscock, Marika McCoola and Jennifer Sattler, we are proud to present a panel discussion featuring all three artists discussing their work and visual storytelling for children. 

Bruce Hiscock is the award-winning author-illustrator of many books for young people, including The Big Tree, The Big Caribou Herd, and Coyote and Badger, and has illustrated two books by Stephen R. Swinburne, Wings of Light and Turtle Tide.  

Marika McCoola is an illustrator, educator, and the New York Times bestselling author of Baba Yaga's Assistant, an Eisner Award finalist. In addition to writing and illustrating, Marika teaches Studio Art, Illustration, and Children's Literature online for the State University of New York, Empire State College, works as an indie bookseller, and teaches art & writing classes. She's also taught Children's Literature for the K-6 Classroom for Skidmore College's Education department and for Bard College at the Care Center.

Jennifer Sattler is the award winning author and illustrator of several children's books including Frankie the Blankie; Sylvie; Uh Oh, Dodo!; and the popular series Chick 'N' Pug and Pig Kahuna. She studied painting and drawing at the University of New Hampshire and then the Hope School of Fine Arts at Indiana University in Bloomington. In 1996, she won a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. Her books have won The Mockingbird Award for picture books and The Georgia Children's book Award.
