EVENTSWHAT'S HAPPENING

Joe Sutphin


Mount Vernon Nazarene University is pleased to host Joe Sutphin as part of the MVNU 2017-18 Lecture/Artist Series. An illustrator for children’s books such as the New York Times bestseller “Word of Mouse” by James Patterson, Sutphin will visit MVNU on Wednesday, Feb. 14 and Thursday, Feb. 15.

Paragraphs Bookstore, 229 S. Main St., will host a book signing event with Sutphin on Wednesday from 4-5:30 p.m. where he will discuss his latest illustrations in “Raffie on the Run” by Jacqueline Resnick.

He will speak on his spiritual journey and career on the main campus on Thursday, Feb. 15 at 7:30 p.m., in Thorne Performance Hall which is free and open to the public.

Sutphin began drawing when he was younger. He left art school when he was 20 years old but still continued to tell stories and draw. In 2003 he began a children’s art portfolio and then found himself being mentored by Tony DiTerlizzi, the creator of “The Spiderwick Chronicles.” Sutphin gives DiTerlizzi credit for being an encouragement in his time of becoming an artist. Stuphin’s work in James Patterson and Chris Grabenstein’s “Word of Mouse” has been reviewed as “reminiscent of Garth Williams’s work in ‘Stuart Little’” by Publishers Weekly.
