The Children’s Literary Salon is back in full swing and is delighted to invite you to our free program at NYPL on Saturday, September 15th at 2:00 p.m.
Editor Patti Lee Gauch and the State of the Picture Book
The picture book has long been a favorite of both children and adults. But why do some picture books stand transcend? Do they begin, as an Act of Mischief – with design and color as well as idea? And what about the creators themselves? Did the mischief begin with them? Using examples from some of the best loved picture books, Patricia Lee Gauch, editor of three Caldecott medal winning books, will bring new understanding to this popular genre.
This talk will be held in the South Court Auditorium in the main branch of New York Public Library. Anyone is free to attend. The more the merrier!
