Author Event: Violet Lemay

Join Page 158 Books as we welcome author/illustrator Violet Lemay for the release of her children's book Alithia Ramirez Was An Artist

She drew the world as it should be--full of color and joy, creativity and fun. From her teachers to her family and friends, Alithia shared her gifts with an open heart. Being an artist is never easy, but she drew every day to practice her skills and help everyone feel the love that art can bring.

Written to honor Alithia and all the lives affected by the Uvalde school tragedy, "Alithia Ramirez Was an Artist" will help preserve the memory of this talented young girl through her story and her artwork. 

Violet Lemay is an illustrator and author whose clients include HarperCollins, Random House, Simon & Schuster, Highlights, Penguin, Scholastic, Holt, and duopress. Violet's work has won awards, being selected for various illustration annuals including The Society of Illustrators LA, RSVP, and American Illustration 20, 21 and 32. Her latest book, Let's Be Friends, won The Book-Fest's first place award for diversity in children's books.
