Mira Reisberg (the lady on the right) is a woman who needs no introduction, but I will introduce her anyway because that's my job. Mira has worn many hats including: Art Instructor, Children's Literature Teacher, Scholarly Writer, Blogger, Illustrator, Writer, and I better stop there or the whole post will just be a list of what Mira has done. It wasn't long ago that Mira started "The Picture Book Academy". Since opening the Academy's name has changed to the "Children's Book Academy". This Academy has wonderful teachers and fantastic classes for Writer's and Illustrators of all levels.
One lucky person will receive Mira's Photoshop class as a prize. Details after this interview!
