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