"Northwestern University Library and Evanston Public Library have teamed up to bring a unique exhibit of original children's book art to the Chicago area. An Imaginary Library: Children's Books That Don't Exist (Yet) brings together 75 original paintings, sketches, and drawings by many of the world's most successful and best-known artists for children, including Americans Peter Sis, David Wiesner, and Vladimir Radunsky. These artists were invited by the International Youth Library in Munich, Germany, to create an original book cover for a book that does not exist - but which someday the artist would like to create. The exhibit, which has already been staged in Japan, Greece, and Iran, was featured at the 8th annual regional conference of the United States Board on Books for Young People. Regional sponsors of the conference included National Louis University and Dominican University's Butler Center for Children's Literature, and the Northwestern University Library. An Imaginary Library opened October 9 at the Evanston Public Library for a three-month run"
