Join Us For A Special Event On Sunday, Nov. 16

Please join us Sunday November 16 for a special fundraising event for Reader To Reader & honoring Norton Juster for his devotion to literacy.

Sunday, November 16, 4pm - 6pm
Most artists will be present!

R. Michelson Galleries
132 Main Street
Northampton, MA

(Admission is free)

Refreshments generously donated by Whole Foods Market and Atkins Farms Country Market.

R. Michelson Galleries has generously dedicated their Nineteenth Annual Children's Illustration Exhibition to benefit Reader To Reader.

A percentage of all sales will go to Reader To Reader
and the reception will feature special works that many artists have donated to help raise funds for our organization. We will be raffling off one of the illustrations at the reception.

Come and meet many of these famous illustrators and join us in a special ceremony honoring Norton Juster, author of The Phantom Tollbooth and most recently Sourpuss and Sweetie Pie, and an early advocate of Reader To Reader. We are pleased to recognize Norton for his devotion to literacy.

The event features the works of these new artists to R. Michelson Galleries:

Mo Willems - Three time Caldecott Honor Recipient
Jarrett Krosoczka - One of Print's top 20 visual artists under 30 (2003).
Raul Colon - Recipient of the Society of Illustrators' gold and silver medals.
