RIP Maurice Sendak.

Posted on

One of our favorite children’s authors and illustrators has unfortunately passed away today. He was 83.

Sendak had an amazing respect for the minds of younger readers, often showing that children are a “tangle of vulnerability and resilience.” You can find a nice obituary of the author at The New York Times and below we have a video of Sendak talking about his career:

At the library we have quite a few books by Sendak, including many of his classics, such as In The Night Kitchen and Outside Over There, as well as Spike Jonze’s film version of his most classic work, Where The Wild Things Are.

Sendak will be missed and appreciated, and thankfully we’ll have his works forever, which we hope that you’ll come and check out.

Happy Star Wars Day!

So no matter what you get up, we hope that you have yourself an incredibly fun and safe weekend…

And a great Cinco de Mayo.
