Coming up at the Carle

The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Amherst, Massachusetts, always has exciting events, exhibits, classes, and family programs going on. Over the next few days, however, there are a few certain to interest bibliophiles, whether you collect children's lit or not. One happens this Sunday the 10th, when world-renowned illustrator and printmaker Barry Moser drops by to 'talk about words and pictures.' A book signing will follow.

Then, on Friday the 15th, Eric Carle himself will host a special presentation and reception in honor of Leo Lionni. Carle will unveil the late author-illustrator's bronze sculpture, Imaginary Garden. The following day, Carle will be at the museum for his annual book-signing visit. (I attended this event four years ago. Yes, you will wait in a long line, but yes, you will also meet the legendary Mr. Carle and get your books signed!)
