NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - Award winning children’s book author Bruce Arant visited North Platte on Saturday to showcase his children’s books as well as teach people how he writes and draws his books.

Arant said he started out loving to draw and write, but his parents insisted he go to college and study business. From there, he spent many years slowly working his way back towards his passions of writing and drawing.

Arant has since wrote multiple award winning children’s books and now teaches others how to be published and reminds us all to follow our dreams.

The Prairie Arts Center had sheep outside to welcome Arant and for kids to pet and learn about.

Online Exclusive: Arant talks to KNOP about how he followed his dreams and is now doing what he loves, and wants others to do the same.
