Fall 2013 Curator's Choice - The ABC of It
For Donors $250 or more.
Join Leonard S. Marcus, curator of The ABC of It: Why Children's Books Matter as he leads a behind-the-scenes tour and provides background on how he chose what to include and exclude from the exhibition. The ABC of It draws on collections across the Library to present the literature for children and teens against a sweeping backdrop of history, the arts, popular culture, and technological change.
To reserve your spot, please call the Friends Office at 212.930.0653 or email.
