Draw Me a Story

Come help acclaimed author, Emma Otheguy (Sofia Acosta Makes a Scene) dream up a story and watch, amazed, as Caldecott-winning illustrator Dan Santat (The Blur) and rising star cartoonist Shauna J. Grant (Mimi: Cutie Catastrophe) draw it on the spot! You decide what fates these characters will meet!
