Read in September, 2011

This week's story times were inspired by Sendak's In the Night Kitchen.

The Madison Library District was one of 35 nationally-selected libraries chosen by the American Library Association to host a new traveling exhibition that explores the influence of Jewish culture and history in the work of renowned illustrator Maurice Sendak. The exhibit is an exploration of his illustrations and picture books, revealing connections between these iconic works and his childhood, family, and the popular culture of the time. The colorful exhibit panels feature illustrations of ferocious creatures, curious children and vibrant neighborhoods, alongside thematic explorations of the Jewish culture and history, including Sendak’s own family experience, that influenced his work.

The library is hosting family, children's, and adult events relating to the exhibit through September and early October 2011.
