My latest book is a biography about Berta and Elmer Hader, Caldecott winning author/illustrators of the 20th century, entitled Drawn Together. Their work is represented in the major children book collections. Mary Margaret McBride, the Oprah of the 1930s, once said, “When I tell people about the Haders, they think they’re a figment of my imagination.” Their humor and creativity led to lifelong friendships with their editors and other luminaries: Imogen Cunningham, Bessie Beatty, Rose Wilder Lane, and Katherine Anne Porter. Their everyday lives exemplify the timeless themes of love, respect, hard work, passion for art and nature, and active conservation.
