This is the GREATEST Book Ever!
Iconic pop artist Keith Haring comes to life for young readers in this picture book biography lovingly written by his sister. This one-of-a-kind book explores the life and art of Keith Haring from his childhood through his meteoric rise to fame. It sheds light on this important artist’s great humanity, his concern for children, and his disregard for the establishment art world. Reproductions of Keith’s signature artwork appear in scenes boldly rendered by Robert Neubecker. This is a story to inspire, and a book for Keith Haring fans of all ages to treasure.
Kay is a younger sister of artist Keith Haring. Coming from an artistic family, she did her share of sketching and drawing while growing up, but found expressing herself with words was more to her liking.
For her professional career, Kay spent many years in the nonprofit field, both in management and fundraising capacities.
Kay is a wife, mother, writer, hiker, lover of art, and of the wonders of nature. She is interested in writing nonfiction stories for children that are inspirational and thought provoking.
I wrote this story to answer the question, “What was Keith like as a kid?” The answer; “HE WAS ALWAYS DRAWING!”
What I most want people to remember about Keith is his deep commitment to community and his unending generosity. He also worked HARD. He had a vision that everyone could be connected through art, he believed in what he was doing and just kept drawing! Please share this story with a child in your life. Enjoy,
…somewhere in the NY city subway…
