Join the Norwalk Historical Society for “Norwalk Quilt Stories: Virtual Talk with Author Lizzy Rockwell”
Ms. Rockwell’s illustrated talk will dive into the story behind her newly published children’s book, The All-Together Quilt. Her talk will also explore Norwalk quilt stories as she discusses her work with Peace by Piece: The Norwalk Community Quilt Project, the inspiration for her book. The evening will be rounded out with a few surprise guests and an interactive Q & A.
Lizzy Rockwell is a children’s book author and illustrator with over 35 books published. She studied art and art history at Connecticut College, and illustration at the School of Visual Arts. Lizzy collaborated as illustrator on 19 books written by her mother, Anne Rockwell, including Apples and Pumpkins and Hiking Day. Lizzy volunteers every week as artistic director and community organizer for Peace by Piece: The Norwalk Community Quilt Project. Her most recent book, The All-Together Quilt, is based on her twelve years of experience with community quilting, and the wonderful friends she has made along the way. Lizzy believes that, “Reading is as essential to a young child’s development as the nourishment of food. A book is the first work of art that a child will experience. Art feeds the soul. It connects us to our shared human experience and helps make sense of the mysteries of the universe.” Visit www.lizzyrockwell.com & www.thealltogetherquilt.com to learn more about her work.
