In conjunction with
Crookston Public Library
David Geister, who specializes in historical art, picture book illustrations, and landscape paintings, will give the audience a glimpse into the working process of a picture book artist and historical painter. Geister will discuss the influence that books, teachers, and librarians played in developing his early fascination with history and art.
The audience will also learn about the historical aspect of his illustrations, including the story of the First Minnesota Regiment and its charge at the Battle of Gettysburg.
