One Fine Day about James Marshall

In August, Publishers Weekly published appreciations of author-illustrator James Marshall from Susan Meddaugh, Nicole Rubel, Jack Gantos, and Marc Brown.

Next month, on 18 November starting at 7:00 PM, there will be a celebration of Marshall’s life and work on the MIT campus in Cambridge. Roger Sutton of The Horn Book will moderate, and Meddaugh and Anita Silvey are expected to speak.

All this comes in connection to what looks like a reissue of the George and Martha omnibus originally published on the 25th anniversary of those hippos' literary debut in 1972.
