Luke Flowers & Meg Fleming


LUKE FLOWERS has been drawing ever since he can remember from up in the mountains of Colorado, where he still lives with his wife and three kids. He now spends his days and most nights in his creative cave illustrating for children's books, magazines, and gallery shows. Luke has illustrated over thirty children's books.

MEG FLEMING comes from a long line of sailors. She learned to sail from her dad . . . who learned to sail from his dad. Her first job aboard a boat was holding the end of the line. She was 3. (And she was good at it!) Meg's favorite thing about sailing are the stories, which is probably why she spends so much time writing them now! She is the author of Ready, Set, Build! and I Heart You. She writes from her home outside of San Francisco with her husband, three kids, and dog on deck.

Tattered Cover will design an order form that the school should distribute in advance of the author visit, and again on the day of the event to all student attendees. 

Link to share with students and their families to order Luke's and Meg's books: Please make sure anyone ordering online includes the name of your school in the Notes section of the order and if they'd like to pick up the book from you at the school. Please DO NOT give a book to someone who says they ordered online unless they have the printed confirmation. PLEASE KEEP THIS! You'll need to include these confirmations when returning the leftover books so you won't be charged for them! If they do ask you for a book without a confirmation, just email me the name of the student and parent's name and I can check.
