Save the ART date, September 17th with Dyanne DiSalvo!
Born, raised and housebroken in Brooklyn, New York, DyAnne DiSalvo decided to become a children’s book illustrator when her kindergarten teacher at P.S 230 told her that, “books were not born in the library.” Inspired to persue her art — which was the only thing in school that she was ever good at. — DiSalvo followed her lifelong dream, took a lot of subways, got a lot of rejection letters, and finally got her first book. Published since 1980 her award winning illustrated books include renowned authors, Beverly Clearly, Mary Pope Osborne, Jean Fritz, Jane O’Connor, Patricia Reilly Giff, Jean Marzollo and Amy Hest.
