Lisa Nowlain is a children’s librarian; Harold W. McGraw, Jr. Fellow at Darien Library (CT); and an artist. If she’s not crafting open-ended arts programs at the library, she’s going long on the ultimate frisbee field, hiking, or drooling over picture books and graphic novels. To see more of her work, go to lisanowlain.com.
