About the Poster Artist

"First Night Northampton is an enchanting time to button up and venture out under the moon. The streets are filled with wonder and children's laughter bursts like fireworks."
Kathryn Brown

Children's book illustrator Kathryn Brown lives in Northampton and began her career by pairing watercolor art with her own stories. She has also brought her whimsical approach to picture books by other writers including Nora's Chicks by Patricia MacLachlan, the award-winning Tough Boris by Mem Fox, The Littlest Matryoshka by Corinne Demas Bliss, and Jane Yolen's Eeny, Meeny, Miney Mole.

Kathy's First Night poster draws some inspiration from her watercolor illustrations in When Moon Falls Down by Linda Smith, a story that sheds new light on what happens at night.
