They will be recognized for their contributions to children’s literature at the September 22nd ceremony in New York City.

Here’s more from the press release: “The awards recognize individuals in four distinct forms: Artist, for lifelong innovation in the field; Mentor, editors, designers, and educators who champion the art form; Angel, whose generous financial support is crucial to making picture book art exhibitions, education programs, and related projects a reality; and Bridge, individuals who have found inspired ways to bring the art of the picture book to larger audiences through work in other fields.”
