Picture Books We Love

Leave Your Sleep Booksigning with Natalie Merchant and Barbara McClintock

We were so thrilled to have Natalie Merchant and Barbara McClintock join us this past Saturday for a special appearance and book signing. They signed copies of their book, Leave Your Sleep, for crowds of happy guests.

Leave Your Sleep is a gorgeously illustrated collection of delightful and essential children's poetry, selected by Natalie Merchant and then put to music (available on CD free with the book).

The exhibition, Natalie Merchant and Barbara McClintock: Leave Your Sleep, features Barbara McClintock's original artwork, as well as showing the collaboration between friends to make this beautiful book. We love that Natalie Merchant's music plays in the gallery so that guests can get the full experience.

If you haven't seen the exhibition yet, it is on view until May 4, 2014 and if you missed the chance to get an autographed book, for a limited time, we have autographed copies (signed by both Natalie and Barbara) in our Shop.

Thank you Natalie and Barbara!
