The 8th Annual Barbara Elleman Research Library (BERL) Lecture with Anita Silvey (1 PDP)

April 28, 2018
2:00pm 
Free with Museum Admission

Celebrating the Caldecott: The stories behind some of the great Caldecott Medal and Honor Books.
with editor, author, and scholar Anita Silvey


Every picture book tells a story. But every book also has a story behind it – why the author or illustrator chose the idea, how they found a publisher, and what happened when the book went into the market place. Looking at 80 years of Caldecott history, Professor Anita Silvey of Simmons College will highlight some of the great Caldecott choices and the stories behind these books. 

Program followed by book signing and reception.
