Who is D.W.? Ask any elementary-aged child and they will tell you that D.W. is the precocious and independent sister of Arthur, the star of children’s books and the PBS animated series of the same name.

D.W. (short for Dora Winifred) is based on Kim Brown, sister of Marc Brown, author/illustrator of the Arthur series for 25 years. She’ll be telling stories from her childhood, talking about the characters in the books, and sharing secrets on how to illustrate Arthur books. Each student will get the opportunity to illustrate their own Arthur picture and have it personalized by the speaker

The public is invited to join us for this exciting event at 6 p.m. on Thursday at Crystal Hill Elementary.

Books will be for sale after the presentation for $8 each.
