Fellow Book Lover Val is bringing you one of her favorite courses. As a long time graphic designer and design educator, the history of communication and the book have been forefront of her career to share with others as an educator. Early memories of book mobiles including the smell of those new books along with being surrounded by piles of books from that early age are aspects that drive her in life.
Val has an MFA in Graphic Design and in 2018 walked away from tenure in a 20+ career as a graphic design professor. Her courses have been developed based on interactions with many in the college environment, but relatable to all ages. This books course is recommended for 10 and up.
