It’s time to celebrate another splendiferous picture book pairing—a real gem and future classic in the making, from celebrated author Elaine Vickers. Here is the deal listing . . .

Sylvie Frank at S&S/Wiseman has acquired HOW TO MAKE A MEMORY by Elaine Vickers. This poignant picture book celebrates memory and its place in helping us hold dear life’s precious moments. Ana Aranda will illustrate. Ammi-Joan Paquette at Erin Murphy Literary Agency represented the author and Adriana Dominguez with Full Circle Literary represented the illustrator, both for world rights. Publication is slated for Spring 2023.

This gorgeous text draws on some of the deepest and most meaningful moments we share as humans—and guides us step by step in capturing and celebrating them in the most powerful way possible. I absolutely adore this book, and I can’t wait for you all to fall in love with it, too.—And how about that dream team of creators?!!

Huge congratulations, Elaine!
