Award-winning artist E.B. Lewis, known for his rich watercolors and lush detailed illustrations in more than 50 children’s books, is the guest speaker Wednesday, February 9th at 6:15 p.m. as part of the Dart After Dark series at the Dart Branch Library.

In the Dart After Dark presentation, Lewis will share his story of inspiration and sacrifice, explaining how a class clown can turn himself into a serious artist and winner of both the Coretta Scott King Illustrator Award for Talkin' about Bessie: The Story of Aviator Elizabeth Coleman and the Caldecott Honor Award for Coming on Home Soon.

Dart After Dark is a monthly series of programs being offered by Charleston County Public Library at the John L. Dart Library Branch, 1067 King Street. The programs are held after the branch’s normal 6 p.m. closing time in hopes of bringing the community together and offering them quality programming during the evenings.
