Minor, Florence

Florence’s transition from film editor for TV to author and collaborator with her husband Wendell has been working out very well for many years. Her love of animals and the natural world are reflected in her books If You Were a Penguin – a Pennsylvania One Book Literacy Program selection, If You Were a Panda Bear – a Bank Street College of Education’s Best Children’s Books of the Year andHow To Be a Bigger Bunny. She has loved cats since she was a child, so it’s no surprise that her next collaboration with Wendell will feature lots of felines!

Florence and Wendell have been honored with the New England Independent Booksellers Association (NEIBA) President’s Award for lifetime achievement in arts and letters, and were Honorees of the Boston Public Library’s 27th annual Literary Light, which recognizes outstanding writers from the Northeast for their inspiring work. Visit Florence at www.minorart.com and on Facebook and Instagram.
