Winter WIN - Special Events

Winter Weekend in Norfolk is around the corner and is offering so many interesting events to tune into for the young and young at heart alike. 

If you love children's stories don't miss the author's talk with noted author Leonard Marcus who discusses Margaret Wise Brown (1910-1952) the inspired poet and mercurial free-spirit behind America's best-loved bedtime book, Goodnight Moon. During her brief but comet-like career, Margaret Wise Brown combined a fascination with child psychology and modern art with a passion for storytelling to create over 100 of children's literature's most original picture books. Meet the irreverent, strong-minded modern woman who gave sweet dreams to millions while insisting that children deserve great words and great art in their books. In this illustrated talk, noted author Leonard Marcus introduces Marcus' writings and exhibitions have earned him acclaim as one of the world’s preeminent authorities on children’s books and the people who create them. He is the author of more than 25 award-winning biographies, histories, interview collections, and inside looks at the making of the enduring classics of children's literature.
