Author and Illustrator Tad Carpenter would love to meet you! He is happy to visit your grade school, middle school, high school, University or art school to discuss writing and illustrating children’s books. Carpenter also visits with several other organizations ranging from AIGA chapters, AAF groups, Art director Clubs and various other design based organizations talking about his design process and the power of play in his work. He will try to keep the sports references to a minimum but he can’t promise that.

Typically a lecture in regards to I Say, You Say would include a short walk through in the process in concepting the series with pencil sketches and various versions of the books followed by reading the books together as a group and ending with Carpenter sharing other books and projects from his portfolio. Tad typically also brings prints, other books, journals and goodies for his hosts. Sure to be a good time. Each lecture can be designed specific for your organization.
