We have a totally awesome Maurice Sendak exhibit going on at Central Library right now!
As a child, I was a huge fan of Where the Wild Things Are, though I also loved another of Sendak’s books, Higglety Pigglety Pop! (seriously, say that title and see if you don’t smile). Come on down to Central Library and see the exhibit, as well as our display of “More Wild Things” books outside Center for the Reader. Children’s books aren’t the only ones where you’ll find tales of fantastical beasts—we’ve got Kraken by China Mieville, Grendel by John Gardner, and more. You may be surprised by the wild things you find inside!
