An Honors Gala—including the ceremony, a dinner reception, and a silent auction of author experiences and original art to benefit the museum—will be held September 22 at Guastavino's in New York. The auction items are unbelievable; go ogle them either online or in person at NYC's Books of Wonder. A sampling:
- illustrations by Tomi Ungerer, Chris van Allsburg, honoree Lois Ehlert, and more
- visits with Tomie DePaola and Kadir Nelson
- personalized poems by Jane Yolen
- customized art by Rosemary Wells and Eric Carle himself
