After trekking around the world as a travel journalist, I decided to write and photograph books for young readers. The Little Butterfly follows the journey of a monarch caterpillar as it munches milkweed plants. It grows and sheds its skin. Finally, it forms a chrysalis and turns into a beautiful butterfly.

I will read sections of the book and share stories of how I took close-up photos of the monarch’s life cycle.

The session will encourage questions.
