The Carle Honors
The 2022 Carle Honors and Art Auction will take place on Thursday, September 29, 2022
“We are delighted to celebrate our honorees with our first in-person celebration since 2019,” said Rebecca Miller Goggins, director of development at The Carle. “This year, we also plan to incorporate some exciting virtual components that were first introduced in 2020, making this our first hybrid fundraiser. When the pandemic sent us all reeling, we returned again and again to our deepest connections. The Carle fosters these connections through picture books, which bring us together and remind us to be our best selves. On September 29th we will honor those who make these books possible.”
About The Carle Honors
Each year, The Carle Honors recognize individuals in the picture book field for their dedication and creative vision. The four honorees are selected by a committee chaired by children’s book historian, author, and critic Leonard S. Marcus, founder of the Honors, in the following categories:
Artist. Given to an individual who has shown lifelong innovation in the field.
Mentor. For an editor, designer, or educator who has championed the art form.
Angel. For an individual whose generous resources are crucial to making picture-book art exhibitions, education programs, and related projects a reality.
Bridge. For an individual who has found inspired ways to bring the art of the picture book to larger audiences through work in other fields.
The Carle Honors Art Auction
Featuring original works of art donated by some of the industry’s most celebrated artists, the Auction is a crucial part of The Carle Honors. Bids can be placed online in advance of the event, or that night. View the 2021 Art Auction.
