It’s getting to be that time of year again…The annual Carle Honors! This year we’re again honoring some of the most amazing people in the children’s book industry.
The 2010 Artist award goes to Caldecott-winning author and illustrator David Macaulay.
The 2010 Angel award goes to noted art collectors and longtime supporters of The Carle, Allan & Kendra Daniel.
The 2010 Bridge award goes to renowned sculpter, Nancy Schön, who is the creator behind the beloved Make Way for Ducklings sculpture in Boston Public Garden among many others.
The 2010 Mentor award goes to Stephen Mooser & Lin Oliver, the president and executive director of The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.
The Carle Honors will be held on the evening of Thursday, September 30th at Guastavino’s in New York City. Information about tickets can be found on our website here.
This year’s commemorative poster has been created by Eric Carle, himself. The poster will be on sale at The Carle Honors, but we’ll also be selling it online for those unable to attend. All posters will be signed by Eric Carle and are available now for pre-order here.
In addition to the award festivities, there will also a silent art auction of original work by an amazing list of children’s book illustrators. This beautiful ocean scene by G. Brian Karas is one of my favorites! Click here to view all of the art pieces for auction and pick your favorites. The original pieces will also be available for viewing at Books of Wonder in New York City until the day of the auction. For more information about the auction and bidding, click here.
