Author and Illustrator Tad Carpenter would love to meet you! He is happy to visit your grade school, middle school, high school, University or art school to discuss writing and illustrating children’s books. Carpenter also visits with several other organizations ranging from AIGA chapters, AAF groups, Art director Clubs and various other design based organizations talking about his design process and the power of play in his work. He will try to keep the sports references to a minimum but he can’t promise that.

Typically a lecture in regards to Sad Santa would include a short walk through the process in concepting and writing the book with pencil sketches and various versions of the book followed by reading the books together as a group and ending with Carpenter sharing other books and projects from his portfolio. Tad typically also brings prints, other books, journals and goodies for his hosts. Sure to be a good time. Each lecture can be designed specific for your organization.
