Presented by The Vancouver Writers Fest
Sydney Smith, Esta Spalding
How much—or how little—do authors and illustrators communicate when they’re creating a book? Who’s the boss? Or is there one? And how do they make sure they’re “on the same page” when they start a project? Today Sydney Smith and Esta Spalding talk about how they worked together on the first two books in Spalding’s Fitzgerald-Trout series, featuring a band of loosely related children living together on a tropical island and fending for themselves. Smith, a star in the realm of kids’ book illustration, was in grade six when drawing became a major part of his life. Spalding grew up writing stories and poems. It’s never too soon for kids to tap into their talents. This duo might be just the inspiration that’s needed.
