2 Great CT Children's Book Events!

 I just had to share info about these 2 great events that are happening in CT beginning the weekend of Nov 9th!

This one you may know about as it happens every year, but it's always a good time (even if you just go to see the book characters or get signed books!) Some authors I'd like to see include Nick Bruel (Bad Kitty), Diane DeGroat (Gilbert & friends), and Jarrett Krosoczka (Lunch Lady). Just a note - be sure to stop at the UConn Dairy Bar while in Storrs.

22nd Annual CT Children's Book Fair

 Saturday & Sunday
November 9-10, 2013
10:00 am until 5:00 pm / Univ. of CT campus

 The second event kicks off Nov 9 at the New Britain Museum of American Art. having grown up not too far from there, this museum holds a special place in my heart. My kids often take some of their great art classes too. I am thrilled that they are having an exhibit to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are! (I've already booked a trip for my Girl Scout troop!)

 Maurice Sendak

Nov. 9, 2013–Feb. 9, 2014 

Maurice Sendak will be comprised of 65 works, culled to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Sendak’s beloved Where the Wild Things Are.
Also in the gallery will be a film, documentaries, a reading table for children and families, and an interactive art-making area.
