Kevin Lovegreen, author of the popular Lucky Luke’s Adventures series, visits New York Mills on Wednesday, June 12, at 1 p.m.  Lovegreen has published 20 books for children, ranging from picture books to chapter books. The series follows Lucky Luke in his hunting or fishing escapades. 

In his presentation, Lovegreen will describe the behind-the-scenes team involved in creating a book: author, editor, illustrator, designer, and printer. He’ll also answer audience questions about writing and publishing—and about how his own stories came to life. The event is free and open to the public, but preregistration at least one week in advance is requested.
