Margaret Wise Brown Walking Tour

I already mentioned Brenda Bowen’s birthday celebration for Margaret Wise Brown. Here’s another very cool way to celebrate the good lady’s birth:

Celebrate Margaret Wise Brown’s 100th birthday, on Sunday, May 23rd, with a walking tour of Brown’s Greenwich Village, led by Brown biographer Leonard Marcus. Find out where the glamorous author of GOODNIGHT MOON lived, wrote, taught 2nd-graders, sippedp cocktails with Ursula Nordstrom and H.A. Rey, and just possibly hatched plans for THE GOLDEN EGG BOOK and Great Green Room! The fun starts at 2 pm, at the southwest corner of Fifth Ave. & 10th St.Tickets $20; reserve early by contacting Leonard directly: Leonardsma@aol.com
