Warren Fellowship for Future Teachers Public Lecture with Nancy Patz: “The Elephant with a Knot in His Trunk”

Monday, May. 21, 2018 – Monday, May. 21, 2018

06:30 PM – 08:00 PM


Nancy Patz is an award-winning author and illustrator of children's books, which often address emotionally sensitive topics. In "The Elephant with a Knot in His Trunk," Patz and orthodontist Stuart Sheer tell the story of an elephant born with a disability that keeps him from using his trunk as other elephants do. A graduate of Stanford University, Patz's paintings, prints and drawings have been exhibited in museums and galleries, and she often lectures to school and teachers' groups on her books and the art of the picture book.

Nancy Patz's lecture is underwritten by the Warren Fellowship for Future Teachers, an annual program that works with students from across the country as they prepare to enter the teaching profession.
