One Foot in Front of the Other

art blog 1

Carolrhoda has published hundreds of authors and illustrators in its five decades in print, but perhaps none is more closely associated with the imprint than Nancy Carlson. Of course, Nancy’s work predates my editorial tenure—hell, Nancy’s earliest work predates my potty training—but she’s not slowing down, and we’re very proud to continue to publish her picture books. But Nancy is more than picture books. 

A lot of 30somethings and their 60something parents associate Nancy’s dozens of  books with childhood and growing up, but Nancy’s living a full life, and I think what she has to say about growing old will prove as important and moving as what she’s said (and will continue to say) about growing up.

Don’t miss her new project.
