THROUGH FEBRUARY 7 IN OUR GROUND FLOOR GALLERY: "One Hundred Books Famous in Children's Literature." Powerful narrative, unforgettable characters, illustration that stirs the imagination, and insights that engage the mind and heart – literature for children is forged from the same enduring elements as literature for adults. Children’s books with these qualities often shine for generations, with some achieving landmark fame; and a few such books ultimately go on to enter the canon of classics of children’s literature. The Grolier Club exhibition "One Hundred Books Famous in Children’s Literature" showcases one hundred books of this caliber, printed from 1600 to 2000. Some of the beloved books on view are Robinson Crusoe, Grimms’ Fairy Tales, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Tom Sawyer, Treasure Island, Peter Rabbit, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Peter and Wendy, Winnie-the-Pooh, Charlotte’s Web, The Cat in the Hat, Where the Wild Things Are, and Harry Potter. These classics and others – many famous today, some only in their time – will delight adults and children alike. See under "Children's Exhibition" in the navigation menu at left for more details, including press releases, images, catalogue ordering information, and schedules of public events planned in connection with this landmark "Grolier Hundred" exhibition.

BIBLIOGRAPHY WEEK is January 20-24, 2015. Bibliography Week happens each year in New York City at the end of January when the principal national organizations devoted to book history have their annual meetings. Other groups plan interesting events, too, since so many bibliophiles are in town. Some events are open to members only, but mostly you are encouraged to show up everywhere: get a sense of what is going on in the book world, hear some interesting papers, schmooze over cocktails ...
