Celebrate the Life of Peter Sieruta

Celebrate the Life of One of Children’s Literature’s Luminaries:

A Peter Sieruta Event
Friday, June 28th, 4:30 p.m.
The Lake Erie Room at the Hilton Chicago

How did you best know Peter Sieruta?  Was it through his remarkable blog Collecting Children’s Books (a go-to site for wit and historical tidbits)?  Was it from his countless Horn Book articles or his work on the Horn Book Guide?  Maybe you met Peter in a bookstore or you were a close personal friend.  Whatever the case, come, mix, and mingle with other friends and fans of the often urbane, always scintillating fellow.  This event will be held as a celebration of Peter and his book (co-written with Julie Danielson and Betsy Bird), Wild Things: Acts of Mischief in Children’s Literature slated to hit bookstore shelves in spring 2014.

Please RSVP to me at if you would like to attend this gathering.
