Telling Stories Through Words and Illustrations

Author talk with Dan and Connie Burkhardt
| 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. | Bryan Haynes Studio

We invite families, and people of all ages, to connect with Missouri history, conservation, and culture through word and illustration. Join Dan and Connie Burkhardt, authors of Growing Up with The River: Nine Generations on the Missouri as they discuss how the book came about and the collaboration with artist Bryan Haynes to bring the story to life through his illustrations. The program will consist of a short presentation followed by an open house to connect with the Burkharts and enjoy the work displayed in Bryan Haynes’ Gallery.
