Feature Friday: WNBA-NYC and the ABCs of Children’s Books

20130710_180553Wednesday evening , several members of the WNBA-NYC met up at the New York Public Library to take a trip through the history of children’s literature. From picture book classics, down Alice’s rabbit hole, through the Secret Garden, the Harlem Renaissance, and Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, we were treated to bright, colorful, and at times interactive displays that featured rare copies of books by Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Brothers Grimm, and Hans Christen Andersen. Enjoy the pictures of our members and a slideshow of some of the books on display.
