Author/Illustrator to Visit O'Hara Elementary

Author and illustrator Daniel Salmieri will be visiting with O’Hara Elementary School students in kindergarten-grade four October 16, 2018. Salmieri will visit with students in kindergarten-grade two at 1:30 p.m., and with students in grades three and four at 2:30 p.m. The author visit is being sponsored through White Whale Bookstore in Bloomfield and Enchanted Lion Books, the publisher of Salmieri’s latest book “Bear and Wolf.” During Salmieri’s visit, he will discuss how he became an artist and what it means to make art, take chances, and make mistakes.

Salmieri is currently on tour promoting the recent book, the first one that he both wrote and illustrated, “Bear and Wolf.” Additionally, he has illustrated several books, including “Dragons Love Tacos,” “Robo-Sauce,” “Big Bad Bubble,” “Meet the Dullards,” “Around the World on Eighty Legs,” “Secret Pizza Party,” and the “Those Darn Squirrels” series. Some of his clients include The New York Times and The New York Times Magazine, Penguin Random House, HarperCollins, Houghton Mifflin, and Scholastic.
