We know it’s a little early for winter, but you don’t want to miss our exciting program with Ohio author and illustrator Denise Fleming! On Wednesday, November 14 at 7 PM Denise will be at the Delaware Main Library. She’ll talk about her book The First Day of Winter and demonstrate her innovative style of creating book illustrations by pouring paper pulp through hand-cut stencils. After her presentation we’ll make snowmen out of white socks, fabric and other materials. Denise has written and illustrated 19 books, including In the Small, Small Pond, which won a Caldecott Honor in 1994. Her visit is made possible through a “Choose to Read Ohio” grant and the Friends of the Library. Fundamentals Book Store will have copies of her books for sale and autographing. You can learn more about Denise at:, or click play below to watch a video trailer for her new book Underground.
