Author Visit: Erin Barker

Join us in welcoming author/illustrator Erin Barker as she reads her debut picture book, Mr Pumpkin’s Tea Party. Published by our friends at Blue Manatee Press. You are cordially invited to Mr Pumpkin’s Tea Party–a delightfully quirky twist on a counting book, incorporating gorgeous, deep-hued watercolor illustrations, as well as spooky elements and characters at an unexpectedly charming tea party. A perfect read for when there is a crisp chill in the air.

Erin is an illustrator and author based in Cincinnati, Ohio. She received her BA in Painting from Asbury University in 2011, and now focuses on visual storytelling for kids while teaching creative workshops here and there. When she isn’t drawing, painting, or making up weird characters, you can find her at blue manatee literacy project talking about Harry Potter, rollerblading, musical theatre, or the X-Files.
