Help BOOKS OF WONDER celebrate 100 Years of Children’s Book Week Posters with multiple award-winning artists, including 6 winners of the Caldecott Medal. Author LENOARD MARCUS will lead the discussion about 100 Years of Children’s Book Week Posters with fellow authors EMILY ARNOLD McCULLY, JON MUTH, JERRY PINKNEY, CHRIS RASCHKA, URI SHULEVITZ, ROSEMARY WELLS, DAVID WIESNER, and PAUL O. ZELINSKY.

100 Years of Children’s Book Week Posters features work from early luminaries such as N. C. Wyeth and Marcia Brown to more contemporary illustrators like David Wiesner, Mary GrandPré, Christian Robinson, and Jillian Tamaki, this beautiful collection showcases the conceptual and iconic images that have defined children’s books for generations of young readers. While the posters within these pages are linked in their resounding advocacy for young people’s literacy, they are distinguished by the styles and mediums of their creators and by the historical, social, and cultural influences of their times. Renowned historian Leonard S. Marcus traces these developments in the children’s book field with incisive descriptions to accompany each poster.

Authors will answer questions from the audience and sign copies of the book. Join us on Monday, April 29th from 6-8pm at our 18th street store. All ages welcome!
