Live From Prairie Lights: Jennifer Black Reinhardt

Local artist Jennifer Black Reinhardt will present Yaks Yak, a delightful new book she has illustrated, by Linda Sue Park. Learn about the art of illustration as she shares a PowerPoint presentation of her illustrative process. In this funny and informative new children’s book, Reinhardt’s illustrations depict an entertaining survey of animals whose names are also verbs in scenes where yaks yak, slugs slug, rams ram, and crows crow. Jennifer Black Reinhardt received a degree in illustration from Carnegie Mellon University. She has worked in advertising and has had her artwork featured on calendars, humor books, needlepoint kits, collector plates, and a Louie Award–winning line of greeting cards. She is the illustrator of several books for children, including The Inventor’s Secret: What Thomas Edison Told Henry Ford by Suzanne Slade, Rabbi Benjamin’s Buttons by Alice B. McGinty, and The Adventures of a South Pole Pig, written by Chris Kurtz. She lives in Iowa City with her family and a big, white poodle.
