The Grolier Club, 47 East 60th Street, New York, NY Thursday April 17, 2008, 6 p.m.
"A Doubly Fascinating Book: Hawthorne's Wonder Book Illustrated by Walter Crane"

Distinguished historian of 19th-century American book covers, Sue Allen, will deliver the 2007 J. Lieberman Memorial Lecture at the Grolier Club on Thursday April 17 at 6 p.m. Sue will speak on "A Doubly Fascinating Book: Hawthorne's Wonder Book Illustrated by Walter Crane." 

In the 1890s the English illustrator Walter Crane visited America and was invited by Boston publisher Houghton Mifflin to illustrate any book of his choice on their remarkable backlist. He chose Hawthorne's A Wonder Book for Girls and Boys. There is much to wonder about its publication history. Join us as Sue Allen unravels a story sure to intrigue all.

The lecture will take place on April 17, at 6 p.m. at the Grolier Club, 47 East 60th Street (between Park Avenue and Madison Avenue) in New York City. The event is co-sponsored by the Grolier Club, and is free and open to the public.
