Remembering Sendak at the Rosenbach Museum and Library (USA)

Maurice Sendak, illustrator and author of nearly 100 books and winner of ALA's 1964 Caldecott Medal for Where The Wild Things Are, died May 8. He was 83. Creator of amazing nightmares, as the New York Times called Sendak, the artist's works live on at the Rosenbach Museum and Library in Philadelphia, where he contributed more than 10,000 of his illustrations and manuscripts since 1966, and was a trustee. He gained the title of honorary president in 2003
