Picture Books We Love

At The Carle: Partners in Wonder with Jane Yolen

In celebration of our wonderful new exhibition, Partners in Wonder: Selections from the Collection of Jane Yolen, we are welcoming author-extraordinaire Jane Yolen herself and a number of illustrators who have collaborated with Jane on many of her books to The Carle this Saturday. As I'm sure you all know, Jane Yolen is the award-winning author of over 300 books and has written a wide variety of books for children and adults, including picture books, fairy and folk tales, fantasy novels, historical fiction and books on the craft of writing. We are so pleased to be able to host in our galleries select pieces of Jane Yolen's personal collection featuring original artwork from Jane's books by a myriad of popular children's book illustrators. This Saturday, January 15, at 1 pm join Jane Yolen and illustrators Jane Dyer, Barry Moser, Ruth Sanderson and Bruce Degen in our auditorium as they discuss the process of creating a picture book. (l-r) Barry Moser, his book Sky Dogs with Jane Yolen (out of print! boo!) and his newest title, One Hundred Portraits. (l-r) Jane Dyer, one of her pictures books with Jane Yolen, The Three Bears Holiday Rhyme Book, and one of her newest titles, One Smart Cookie by Amy Krouse Rosenthal, illustrated with her daughter, Brooke Dyer. (l-r) Ruth Sanderson, her recent book with Jane Yolen, Hush Little Horsie, and my favorite edition of The Twelve Dancing Princesses (out of print! egads!) illustrated by Ruth Sanderson. (l-r) Bruce Degen, his popular beginner reader series with Jane Yolen, Commander Toad, and his best-selling science series, The Magic School Bus, written by Joanna Cole. Fans and aspiring picture book creators can hear first hand from both the author and illustrator side of the creation process of some of their favorite books. A book signing will follow the presentation at 2:00 pm outside of our store and then Jane Yolen will give a personal tour of her exhibition in our gallery at 2:30 pm. I can't wait! For those who can't make it here in person, we'll post a recap here next week and hopefully have lots of autographed books for sale! For more about Jane and her exhibition, read this terrific article in the Hampshire Gazette. Hope to see you all here Saturday!
