Yikes! This bit of news just about got past me. Sorry for the short notice:
Registration deadline is Oct. 10 for next week’s Cooperative Children’s Book Center’s 50th Anniversary Gala Dinner. The event is scheduled for Thursday October 17, 5-7 p.m., at Monona Terrace, Madison. The banquet is a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the CCBC and will be followed by the Sixteenth Annual Charlotte Zolotow Lecture featuring Leonard Marcus. And if the banquet and lecture weren’t enticing enough, there will be a silent auction as part of the evening’s festivities, featuring donated items (including original art) from some very well known authors, artists and illustrators. It’s an evening not to be missed.
