This illustrated presentation will give an inside look at the path-finding work of Ursula Nordstrom, Harper's visionary editor of children's books. The focus is on the hands-on creation of such well-loved classics as Goodnight Moon, Harold and the Purple Crayon, Charlotte's Web, Where the Wild Things Are, and Harriet the Spy; on Nordstrom's thoughts about children and their books; and on the valuable lessons that writers and illustrators of today can learn from her inspired approach to publishing. Q and A will follow the talk, and participants are welcome to bring copies of books for signing.
