ChildLit GSA Forum: Field Trip!

Next Week: Final ChildLit GSA Forum of Spring 2013 

When: Saturday, April 20, 10:00 am
Where: Bowers Museum, 2002 N. Main Street, Santa Ana, CA 92706
Topic: "Maurice Sendak: 50 Years, 50 Words, 50 Reasons"

The SDSU ChildLit GSA is at it again, transforming our Discussion Forums into a fun and stimulating excursion for all. This time, we are planning our own little field trip! If you have ever read (and consequently loved) a book written or illustrated by Maurice Sendak, then you really will want to join us this coming Saturday.  We are going as a group to visit the Bowers Museum in Santa Ana to see the Maurice Sendak art exhibit: 50 Years, 50 Words, 50 Reasons (it ends April 28th! Not much time left!).

I blogged about the exhibit recently, so you can find all the details about it there. The GSA plans to visit the museum and then have a light lunch in the area to talk shop about Sendak, picture book illustrations in general, and the next wild thing in the horizon.

If you are interested in joining us, please comment on this post or email ASAP; we hope to obtain funding for travel and tickets (looking forward to a fun train ride up the Amtrak possibly!). We do need to know by Wednesday April 17th if you will come with us so we can have tickets arranged and finalize meeting times. Of course, you are welcome to come separately and meet us there too.
