Stories Illustrated: October 27

Resident artist, Betsy Cypert, took pen to paper once again and crafted visual representations of each story. It’s such a treat to look over Betsy’s shoulder during the show and even more exciting to see the finished pieces afterward. We hope you enjoy the October 27th “Into the Darkness” storybook.
