BONUS INTERVIEW SPECIAL GUEST: Telling Stories Through Pictures

It’s an honor to have award-winning illustrator, Jerry Pinkney, join us today to share his fascinating story of learning to embrace his dyslexia.

Growing up in the 40’s during a time of segregation as a young man of color was challenging enough. Adding to that, he had difficulty reading and spelling when dyslexia was unknown and untreated.

Jerry creatively figured out how to navigate the system and use his artist gifts to not only survive without being "found out" in class but to contribute, express himself, and go on to thrive.

What originally was his "safety net and escape" became his vehicle for visual storytelling that celebrates life and the world around us. He wants his audience to "read into his art and grow from it".

As he reflects on his journey of discovering and owning his dyslexia, he shares much wisdom for parents and children regarding the value of hard work, effort, and perseverance and having a willingness to learn.

He shares, "Out of the struggle, there is possibility."

Jerry’s message will not only inspire our budding artists but also anyone who is struggling with dyslexia and needs encouragement.

Please make sure to check out Jerry’s website: jerrypinkneystudio.com and Instagram page @jerrypinkneystudio. His eye for detail and creative way of capturing moments is a delight to see.
