Green Door Art Gallery presents Picture. Book. featuring illustrations by internationally known illustrator and author, Mary Engelbreit. In 2022 without a deadline in sight, Mary decided to do one illustration for every book, poem and story that was important to her while growing up.

She hopes the results take you back to happy memories of your own childhood.Picture. Book.
