Ursula Vernon Is Coming To DBF!

Ursula Vernon
Decatur Book Festival
Target Children’s Stage
Saturday, 4 p.m.

Ursula Vernon may have been born to be an artist – she is the daughter of one – but not before getting a degree in anthropology at Minnesota’s Macalester College. Combined with an interest in sword art, birdwatching, and pottery, it is no wonder that Ursula became an author/illustrator of graphic novels staring animal protagonists including a wombat and a shrew.

Her latest work is the illustrated novel Dragonbreath which concerns, of course, the adventures of Danny Dragonbreath and his bookish friend. "Oh, relax, Wendell. Girls totally dig nerds."
