Writing Graphic Novels with Victoria Jamieson, author of When Stars Are Scattered
October 29 @ 10:30 am
Join Newbery Honor winner and National Book Award finalist Victoria Jamieson in a fun, hands-on comics-making workshop!
Victoria Jamieson is the author and illustrator of graphic novels for kids, including Roller Girl and When the Stars are Scattered.
She was raised in Havertown, PA until she was twelve years old, and her family moved to Florida. Her parents tried to get Victoria and her two brothers excited about our move by buying season passes to Disney World. She loved watching the animators at work on the Backstage Tour, and she decided she wanted to work for Disney when I grew up. Victoria Jamieson attended the Rhode Island School of Design, but soon found herself drawn back toward illustration instead of animation. After graduation and a slew of ill-fated careers (including a portrait artist on a Carnival Cruise ship and a conductor of illegal tours through the Vatican Museums), she began working as a book designer with a children’s book publisher in New York. She lives in Pennsylvania with my husband, son, and surly cat Sharon.
