Ted Lewin will kick off this year’s Meet the Writers series with a visit to see our third graders on Tuesday, October 7. An avid traveler, many of Lewin’s books are inspired by trips to such places as the Amazon River, the Sahara Desert, Botswana, Egypt, Lapland and India. Titles include Gorilla Walk, Animals Work, What am I? Where am I?, Puffling Patrol and Can You See Me? Winner of a Caldecott Honor and awards from the Society of Illustrators, Ted lives in Brooklyn, with his wife, illustrator Betsy Lewin (also on the MTW roster!).
