Pre-registration is encouraged to help prepare for Molly's visit and send event updates, if necessary. Please bring your single-use plastic bags to recycle and help save our oceans for mermaids like Pearl and Coral! Molly Idle is the author and illustrator of the Caldecott Honor-winning picture book Flora and the Flamingo and all of the Flora books. She’s also the creator of the Rex series, which includes Tea Rex and Sea Rex, and the illustrator of People Don’t Bite People. Her newest picture book is the dazzling mermaid tale, Pearl. As a child, Molly was wielding a pencil and scribbling before she could walk. Her mother, who is also an artist, always encouraged Molly to use her paints and easel. After graduating from Arizona State University with a BFA in Drawing, Molly accepted an offer to work as an artist for DreamWorks Feature Animation Studios, where she worked on a number of films. Then she leapt into the world of children’s book illustration! These days, Molly lives in sunny Arizona with her marvelous, multi-generational family which includes: her brilliant husband, two mercurial sons, two remarkable parents, and a pair of snugly cats. When she’s not making mischief with her boys or watching old Technicolor musicals, Molly can be found in her workshop with a pencil in one hand and a cup of espresso in the other- scribbling away on her next picture book! Books will be made available for sale through Beanbag Books both in advance and the night of the event. The "Remarkable Voices" author series is presented by the Delaware County District Library, in partnership with the Friends of the Library, Beanbag Books, Delaware County Historical Society, and the Strand Theatre.
