Knowitall had the opportunity to talk with Lizzy Rockwell when she visited for the Read Eat Grow, a SC State Library event. We talked about her parent's influence on her career path. Anne Rockwell was a children's book author who teamed up with her husband Harlow Rockwell, an illustrator. After her father passed away, Lizzy took up the mantle as an illustrator for her mother's books. Lizzy shared her love for research and illustration techniques.
