Author Kristin McGlothlin discusses her book “Drawing with Whitman” and her inspiration to share Whitman, Cezanne, and other literary/artistic figures with a younger generation. She also talks about her journey in becoming a published author.
This Walt Whitman Birthplace Association event occurred during the 2020 epidemic that led to social distancing. We are delighted to share these events with a much greater audience online. This event would appeal to teachers, educators, children, adults, artists, and “Whitmaniacs” alike. “Drawing with Whitman” is available online on Amazon and in WWBA Gift Shop.
Before becoming a fulltime writer, Kristin McGlothlin worked at the Norton Museum of Art, where she created and taught art classes. She has a B.A. in Art History and a B.A. and M.A. in English. Her M.A. thesis was on the author/illustrator Edward Gorey. McGlothlin wrote and made the artwork for the children’s picture book Andy’s Snowball Story about the contemporary artist Andy Goldsworthy. Drawing with Whitman is her debut middle grade novel. It is the first book in a four-book series titled Sourland Mountain Series. She is currently working on the second book in the series titled Listen that will come out this year.
