Harriet the Spy Turns Fifty

Louise Fitzhugh's Harriet the Spy turns fifty in 2014. To celebrate this golden anniversary, The Carle is organizing an exhibition of original drawings from the book. Initially, Harriet & Co. will return to New York City, premiering at The Forbes Galleries from March 7 to May 3, 2014. Subsequently, these drawings will be joined by those from the sequel, The Long Secret, and be on view from May 20 until November 30, 2014. Random House is publishing a 50th-anniversary commemorative edition with appreciations from, among others, Judy Blume and Lois Lowry.
