The Future Belongs To Those Who Read

I am incredibly flattered that the American Library Association asked me to create a Raven-Cycle themed READ poster for them:

It’s not just that it was a cool illustration assignment — it was — it’s that the READ posters and libraries have a special place in one of the caverns of my dark heart. I was a Navy brat and moved many, many times as a kid, and the first thing my mother used to do when we got to a new place was get library cards for my siblings and me. I spent endless hours sitting in the stacks of public libraries across the U.S. Endless hours beneath READ posters of all sorts.

Could I have imagined that one day, someone else would be sitting under one of those posters with my characters on it?
