When Richard Peck speaks, the quotes come fast and furious! Here are a few of my favorites from today’s sessions–
Richard Peck: “A story is always about going forward because you can never go back.”
Dan Yaccarino on his books in print: “I wasn’t second guessing the market. I was doing what I love and what was in my heart.”
Marla Frazee on picture books: “It’s not the author and illustrator who collaborate. It’s the words and pictures that collaborate” and “Illustration acts like a soundtrack in a film. It amplifies emotions.”
Richard Peck: “Boys do not want to make imaginative leaps; they want to make clear connections.”
One more day of inspiration, and then back to work!
