Erin & Philip Stead Lamstein Lecture in Children's Literature
Erin Stead and Philip C. Stead are the co-creators of the Caldecott Medal winning book A Sick Day for Amos McGee, also named a New York Times Best Illustrated Book of 2010 and a Publishers Weekly Best Children’s Book of 2010. Erin and Philip also co-created Bear Has a Story to Tell, and Philip has written and illustrated several of his own books, including Jonathan and the Big Blue Boat, A Home for Bird, and his debut, Creamed Tuna Fish and Peas on Toast, which was applauded by School Library Journal for “its wry humor and illustrations worthy of a Roald Dahl creation.” Erin also illustrated And Then It’s Spring, written by Julie Fogliano. Philip and Erin live in a 100-year-old barn in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
