Introducing Sophia Gholz

Sophia Gholz, who will be posting about Visual Storytelling for NF Fest, made her smashing non-fiction debut with The Boy Who Grew a Forest (illustrated by Kayla Harren, Sleeping Bear Press). It’s the true story of Jadv Payeng, who began planting trees to help his island home and ultimately, over the years, transformed a bare space into a 1,300-acre forest filled with native plants and animals. Praised by School Library Journal and Booklist, this 2019 Eureka! Nonfiction Children’s Book Honor Award recipient is rich in evocative language. Sophia will share how she, as a trained artist, brings that winning visual component to her storytelling.
