CLiF would like to introduce (or re-introduce) you to Liza Woodruff of Charlotte, VT. Liza illustrated many books before her book Emerson Barks in 2016; this was the first where she was author AND illustrator.

CLiF is so excited Liza wanted to share her newest picture book Once Upon a Winter Day with young readers and writers and artists as part of World Read Aloud Day 2022.
