On March 24, the Cape May County Library will welcome three-time Geisel Award-winning author Greg Pizzoli for a virtual visit. Children ages 5 and up are invited to listen to a book reading, follow along with a drawing demo, and learn how Pizzoli makes his books. Pizzoli is the creator of the Baloney and Friends graphic novel series, as well as the author and illustrator of the picture books "The Watermelon Seed," "Good Night Owl," and "The Book Hog." He also writes nonfiction for kids, including the New York Times Best Illustrated title "Tricky Vic."
