DCDL will welcome the best-selling author

The Delaware County District Library (DCDL) will host Terri Libenson, New York Times bestselling author and award-winning cartoonist, for a free speaking and drawing demonstration open to the public. She will speak Saturday, April 9 at 2 p.m. at the Delaware Main Library, located at 84 E. Winter St. in Delaware.

Libenson is the New York Times bestselling author of the series Emmie & Friends (HarperCollins) and the cartoonist of the Reuben Award-winning, nationally circulated comic book The Pajama Diaries (2006-2020). Previously, she was an award-winning humorous card writer and illustrator for American Greetings.

Emmie & Friends is a popular series for ages 8-12 beginning with “Invisible Emmie”. It stars Emmie and Katie, two seemingly opposite girls. Emmie flies under the radar, but still desires to be “heard.” She finally learns to have the courage to speak out. “Invisible Emmie” and the rest of the Emmie & Friends series are perfect for tweens who love humor, heart, and ridiculously fun designs.

Libenson graduated from Washington University in St. Louis with a BFA in illustration.

The event will be presented in a hybrid format, allowing attendees to join both in person and online via Zoom. Registration will be mandatory for anyone wishing to attend virtually. Please register for the April 9 event at www.delawarelibrary.org/event.

Copies of Libenson’s books will be available for purchase during the conference.
