A big week for Stephanie! First, her daughter gets married! And now ....
My cartoonist pal and neighbor Stephanie Piro is the above-the-fold story in this week's Rochester (NH) Times:
"Each year, CHILIS, the Children's Librarians of New Hampshire, picks a theme to encourage children to take part in their local summer reading programs, and this year, it is the Aussie-sounding G'day for Reading. Also, on an annual basis, an artist in the state is commissioned to create artwork which underscores the theme, and in 2008, the designer of the reading logs, clip art and book marks, the posters, T-shirts and reading certificates, is Farmington illustrator/cartoonist Stephanie Piro — who is also on the staff of the Goodwin Library in Farmington."
Congratulations, Stephanie! And if anyone walks into any public library in the state, they are going to see cartoons of kookaburras, kangaroos and other Aussie animals on posters and bookmarks all over the place all summer long!
