Meet Eric Carle on September 25th

We are still without city power; running on generator power.  This is getting old.  I’m hopeful that we will get power today as the number of people in town with power is rising.

Meet Eric Carle

You can thank my sister for this post.  She forwarded me an email that she got from the Eric Carle Museum.  At 1 PM on September 25, Eric Carle will be at the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art for a pre-release book signing of his new book, The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse.  The signing is free with museum admission. 

Books can be reserved in advance online here to be picked up in the Shop the day of the event (sorry, The Artist who Painted a Blue Horse, only). You must be present the day of the signing to get your early release copy of the book. No copies will be shipped before October 4th.

Please note: Eric will be signing copies of his newest book only. Limit 3 books per person. No personalization or flash photography. We’ll be offering specially designed, pre-autographed bookplates in our Shop for any other Eric Carle hardcover books bought that day.

What a great opportunity to meet a living legend in children’s books.  And wouldn’t an autographed book make a wonderful Christmas gift or baby shower gift?

I hope that my post on the museum doesn’t deter people from visiting the museum.  I want to emphasize that my kids had a great time.  And I think if they actually used the art studio, they would have liked it even more.  I could see a family going to the museum for a half-day outing.  I think it would be a fabulous outing in the winter months when the kids are suffering from cabin fever.

  1. Thank you for posting about The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art. We hope you and your family will come back and enjoy our art studio. People of all ages love creating special projects to take home. We also have a new blog called: Making Art with Children http://www.carlemuseum.org/studioblog/ And, of course – we are so excited to welcome back Eric Carle to celebrate his new book on 9/25!

    • Sandy – thanks for the comment! I’ll make sure to mention the new blog on the site. I’ll definitely be up on 9/25. Hopefully my kids won’t be as shy this time and will take part in the studio. I’d love to write more about the studio. It looked like an incredible place when we were up there last time!
