Marguerite Jill Dye is a third-generation artist, poet, and writer who paints en plein air. Jill’s weekly illustrated column in Vermont’s “Mountain Times” reflects her interest in nature, spirit, and global justice. She is the founder of “Friendship Through the Arts” and led ten study tours throughout China with her husband. After walking and painting along the pilgrimage, Jill wrote Treasures Along the Camino: An Artist’s Empowering Journey Across Spain.
Where is Sam, written by Sandra Stillman Gartner and illustrated by Marguerite Jill Dye, will inspire an exciting workshop for children, their families, and the young at heart. Author Sandy (also presenting her film on Friday at 4:00 at the NWPL) will read the book out loud, then you’ll think about something you love or love most to do, inspiring your own paper cut book! Jill will guide you through paper cut shapes to complete your book that you illustrate. Please pre-register by email firstname.lastname@example.org or calling Jill at 802.422.3616.
