Storytelling vs. Story Showing

Balancing Illustration and Text in Picture Books

LeUyen Pham will discuss the critical balance between text and illustration in picture books, both as an author/illustrator and as an illustrator only. She'll address the need to match the style of illustrations to the particular story, whether or not every story needs an illustration sub-text, and what she wishes authors knew about leaving room for illustrators to contribute their artistic vision.
