BIO

The award-winning illustrator and fine artist, E. B. Lewis has illustrated more than 72 books for children. Inspired by two artist uncles, Lewis displayed artistic promise as early as the third grade. Lewis attended the Temple University Tyler School of Art. It was there that he discovered his medium of preference was watercolor. During his tenure at Temple, Lewis majored in graphic design, illustration, and art education. After graduating, he taught art in public schools for 12 years. He is a member of The Society of Illustrators in New York City, and he is an artist member of Salamagundi Art Club of New York.

In 2003, the Kerlan Collection at the University of Minnesota purchased a collection of original watercolors from E.B.’s first 50 children’s books. Today, his works are displayed in museums, owned by private collectors, and sold by art galleries throughout the United States and Europe.

 

THE WALK – A STROLL TO THE POLL

From award-winning creators, author Winsome Bingham and illustrator E.B. Lewis, The Walk-( A Stroll to the Poll) is a powerful picture book story celebrating a  journey crucial to our democracy: the walk to vote—a perfect read aloud. Granny and her granddaughter are going on a walk. But this is not just any walk. It’s a walk that must not be missed; one that is more important than ever but has been made increasingly difficult for many to participate in. It’s a walk that joins together a community; that lifts voices; that allows us to speak up, stand up, and say what’s on our minds. It’s a walk for hope.
