Video: “Some Writer”

In this video, Melissa Sweet talks about her fully-illustrated biography of author E.B. White. Sweet–who is a Sibert medalist and Caldecott Honor winner–used White’s letters, photos, and mementos, as well as her original collaged art, to tell the White’s story in Some Writer!: The Story of E. B. White.

The video also features quite a few shots of Sweet’s studio. And you know how I’m a sucker for studio tours, even if only through still shots and video.

Sweet has a website and is on Facebook.

Here’s the embed code for the video:
