Participant(s) Bio

Author Jarod Pratt:

Jarod Rhys Pratt is a writer from Detroit, Michigan. Lemonade is his FAVORITE drink. Yet, somehow, when he was a kid, he never got the chance to run a lemonade stand of his own. So, MANY years later, he wrote this book instead and lived out his childhood dream that way. Pratt has two daughters and they both drink the lemonade but he's not so sure they really APPRECIATE la limonada. Not like he does. Pratt really, really, REALLY likes lemonade.

Illustrator: Jey Odin:

Jey Odin is an artist known for his work on the book Miles Away and his creator-owned title Chicken Fight. His ongoing series Hammer is serialized in the world’s most diverse manga anthology, Saturday AM. Jey spent two long years of his life drawing the book Lemonade Code, all while working a day job in a pharmacy. He lives in Georgia with his lovely, supportive wife and two hilariously cute dogs.
