The Collaborative Summer Library Program has announced the illustrator 
for the 2014 program, "Spark a Reaction": Tim O'Brien!

O'Brien is best known in YA literary circles for designing book cover 
images for the /Hunger Games/ trilogy, including the mockingjay brooch 
that was used to promote the film. His striking work has been seen on 
covers for Walter Dean Myers' /Slam/, Thomas Hardy's /The Mayor of 
Casterbridge/, James Fenimore Cooper's /The Last of the Mohicans/, and 
Shakespeare's /Othello/. His extraordinary portraits have also graced 
stamps commemorating Judy Garland and Hattie Smith, and magazine covers 
from /Entertainment Weekly/ and /Harper's /to /Rolling Stone/ and 
/Time/. According to his profile as an adjunct professor with the 
University of the Arts in Philadelphia, he has over a dozen paintings in 
the collection of the National Gallery in Washington, D.C., and is a 
winner of the prestigious Hamilton King 
from the Society of Illustrators (http://www.uarts.edu/users/tobrien).

I'm delighted to see this intriguing talent coming to Summer Reading for 
us. I can't wait to see what reactions his work will spark in 2014!
