Event Details

This walking-tour takes a close look at New York’s fabled creative bohemia, Greenwich Village, as an epicenter of the making of America’s children’s book classics. We will see the row house where Maurice Sendak created Where the Wild Things Are, the Wonderland cottage where Margaret Wise Brown wrote Goodnight Moon, the office building where modern children’s book publishing began, the studio where Robert McCloskey kept a flock of ducklings to serve as models for his most famous picture book Make Way for Ducklings, and more. The tour lasts approximately 2 hours. The fun begins at 11 am. Information: https://easternny.scbwi.org/events/kid-lit-history-field-trip-to-nyc/
