Heartland Artists Gallery Hosts Children’s Book Illustrator

A children’s book illustrator from Granger is the artist of the month of August at Plymouth’s Heartland Artists Gallery. Bruce Langton is scheduled to do a gallery talk and book signing there this evening. Publicity and marketing chair Shelley Heiden says Langton has more than 30 years experience in various forms of visual art.

He’s illustrated 15 book, including “H is for Hoosier.” It features the Indiana alphabet. Some of those original illustrations will be for sale as well.

Tonight’s event starts at 5:30 p.m. Heiden says Langton will share the stories behind his illustrations.

“He’s one of those that wants to go from painting to painting and give you a little background on it. It’s so interesting to find out their passion and why they do what they do.” The gallery talk will start at 6:30 and will be followed by the book signing.

Heiden says Langton’s books feature a variety of subjects with quite a bit of local appeal. Titles include “Win One for the Gipper,” which is of course about Notre Dame football, “P is for Putt,” which features a golf alphabet and “Full Count,” which is a baseball themed book about numbers.
