The ABC of It exhibit and related events

Immerse yourself in over 200 selected treasures including original art and manuscripts — from Millions of Cats to Poky Little Puppy to Beatrix Potter’s sketches for Peter Rabbit — a lush range of materials that explore the impact of children’s literature in society and culture over time.

Curated by visiting curator and children’s book historian Leonard S. Marcus, who adapted the text for this exhibit from a version he curated in 2014 at the New York Public Library. Marcus will be in town for the February 27 Exhibit Opening Reception. See details of all related events below.
