9/22/2018 - 12/30/2018

Melissa Sweet has illustrated over 100 books and has written four, including her latest, Some Author! The Story of E.B. White, a biography of the author of Charlotte’s Web and Stuart Little. In this book, the Sibert medalist and Caldecott Honor winner uses White’s letters, photos, and manuscripts — along with her collaged art — to convey the true story of one of the most beloved authors of all time. In addition to original art for Some Author!, the exhibition includes illustrations for these and other titles: A River of Words: The Story of William Carlos Williams, A Splash of Red: The Life and Art of Horace Pippin, and The Right Word: Roget and His Thesaurus.
