Lori Degman

Lori Degman writes in rhyme, most of the time - but not always. She is the award-winning author of 1 Zany Zoo (Simon & Schuster, 2010 - Winner of the Cheerios New Author Contest, Illinois Reads featured title, and South Carolina Picture Book Award Nominee); Cock-a-Doodle Oops! (Creston Books, 2014 - International Literacy Association Honor Book); Norbert's Big Dream (Sleeping Bear Press, 2016); and the forthcoming Just Read (Sterling Publishing, 2018).

Lori enjoys presenting to children at schools and libraries and presenting to adults at writing onferences. She is a teacher of deaf and hard of hearing students and has a Masters Degree in Early Childhood Education.

Lori lives near Chicago - home of the World Champion Cubs! (She is sorry about the plug, but it's been such a LONG wait!)

Loved the experiences in the ARTery, loved the presentations about the craft of writing and publishing. Gorgeous venues and well-done festival. Well-staffed, very nice venues. Will come again next year from Minnesota – well worth it.
My favorite part was the enthusiasm instilled in my son for books and art! Awesome Day!
Wonderful selection of authors. Great presentations that work for many ages.
