The New York Public Library will be hosting a special exhibit called “The ABC of It: Why Children’s Books Matter.”
Visitors will find this exhibit at the Gottesman Exhibition Hall inside the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building. It will run from June 21, 2013 until March 23, 2014. Children’s literature expert Leonard S. Marcus served as the curator. Here’s more from the release:
The ABC of It draws on collections across the Library to present the literature for children and teens against a sweeping backdrop of history, the arts, popular culture, and technological change. The books and related objects on view reveal hidden historical contexts and connections and invite second looks and fresh discoveries. They suggest that books for young people have stories to tell us about ourselves, and are rarely as simple as they seem.
