An Illustrious Career

title panel for Dorothy Grider's Illustrious Career exhibitAn exhibit celebrating the career of children’s book illustrator Dorothy Grider opened at the Kentucky Library & Museum on July 1, 2009. Driven to become an artist from the age of eight, this Bowling Green native became Rand McNally’s most popular children’s book illustrator in the late 1940s, and her work often stood alone in coloring books, picture books, and activity publications. Illustrating more than 100 books, including six as both author and illustrator, her work is available today in more than 200 libraries around the world.
