If you're in NYC on Sept. 20th and interested in a fancy dinner party filled with picture book greats all to support a wonderful cause, then I've got the fancy event for you:
Hosted by Eric and Bobbie Carle, Norton Juster, Jules and Kate Feiffer this year's Carle Honors Event is shaping up to be a great evening featuring a guest list including a who's who of picture book folk, plus a rock star thrown in. There will be drinks, meals, art, funny speeches...
There is also an art auction being held in conjunction with the event. Even if you're not attending the evening, you can bid on some great works (also, there's something by me). My understanding is that the work will be on view at Books of Wonder on 18th Street for a week or so before the event.
Eric Carle Picture Book Museum in Amherst, MA. Get your tickets now and say, 'hi'.
