Ann MacArthur Primary and Locust Valley Intermediate School students had the opportunity to visit with author Meghan McCarthy, who revealed how she became an author and illustrator during several assemblies on April 6.

Ms. McCarthy is an award-winning author illustrator of children’s books, including: “Earmuffs for everyone,” “Pop! The Invention of Bubble Gum,” and “City Hawk: The Story of Pale Male.”

During her presentation, Ms. McCarthy spoke about inspirations for her artwork and writing as well as how an author creates a published work. She talked about her father’s Volkswagen van as the inspiration for her book, “The Adventures of Patty and the Big Red Bus” and how her father and events in her childhood inspired her as an artist and author.

“Remember the things you do now, and maybe you can write a story about it,” Ms. McCarthy said.
