Jon Scieszka (rhymes with Fresca), author of “The Stinky Cheese Man…” and others, will be the guest speaker (one of my all-time favorite children’s book authors). Other presenters include Andrei Codrescu(!), Mary Bergin (and her latest green travel guide), Susan Troller and I giving presentations about CLUCK: From Jungle Fowl to City Chick (and book signings, card and print sale afterwards), and many other authors and events. This is the most concise and up-to-date schedule I’ve been able to find so far, so I’ve posted it here.
Weekend Schedule for Sue:
Friday: Cutting 2 new blocks. Printing a new (Dexter) tee by end of day.
Saturday: Cutting and printing 2 new reduction relief blocks.
Sunday: 1st of 2 blocks should be nearing completion.
5 new card designs
Both hard and soft cover versions of CLUCK: From Jungle Fowl to City Chicks is also available.
Now in it’s 5th year, the Spring Art Tour features 21 artists who will open their studios to the public for 3 days in June. This year the open studio event is June 10, 11, 12 (Friday, Saturday, Sunday), 10-5 daily.
“Presentation with author Susan Troller and artist S.V. Medaris, this is an illustrated talk about Troller’s new book ‘CLUCK: From Jungle Fowl to City Chicks,’ which is beautifully illustrated with art by Medaris. Troller is a reporter with The Capital Times.”
“This 45-minute illustrated talk will include Susan Troller’s colorful critter stories and S.V. Medaris’s amazing artwork, followed by Q & A for both. S.V. Medaris’s relief prints are on display in ‘Beastly Prints: Modern Interpretations of the Art of the Bestiary‘ in Overture Gallery I.”

Help us celebrate the publication of our colorful illustrated book on the romance and foibles of raising chickens.
You can discover the “Joy of Chix” and the “Zen of Hens” and maybe even learn to dance the funky chicken! Sue and Susan will be there to share some eggcellent stories and autograph your copy of CLUCK.
