Kevin McCloskey Studio Tour



On Thursday, July 5th, SCBWI members and friends are invited to meet children’s book creator Kevin McCloskey in his home art studio in Kutztown, Pennsylvania. Kevin is excited to meet fellow authors and illustrators and talk to the group about his creative process and publishing journey. Following his presentation, he will answer questions and sign books.


Kevin is a Professor of Illustration at Kutztown University and the author-illustrator of four books in the Giggle and Learn series published by TOON Books. The books blend science, art and humor and have been praised by The New York Times as “a winning combination of facts and gross-out fun.” The first book in the series We Dig Worms was voted a Top 10 Graphic Novel and Best Children’s Book of 2015 by School Library Journal. Other titles in the series have been selected by the Junior Library Guild and honored by Bank Street College of Education.


While in Kutztown, please visit the Kutztown Folk Festival just a mile up the road on the grounds of the Fairgrounds, across from Kutztown University.
