Happy 115th birthday to E.B. White! During his life, White wrote some of best known children’s books of the past century, such as Charlotte’s Web, Stuart Little, and The Trumpet of the Swan. He captured the imagination of children everywhere with his talking animals, while at the same time teaching them important lessons, like the value of friendship.
Here at NYPL, we love children’s books! So much, in fact, that we decided to create an exhibition, The ABC of It: Why Children’s Books Matter, where you can actually hear E.B. White read from Charlotte’s Web! If you want relive some memories of your childhood, come check it out at the Stephen A. Schwarzman building through September 7th. Or, you can always stop by your local NYPL branch and pick up a copy of any of E.B. White’s stories today!
Miles Davis in American Cool Exhibition: Of Course
The National Portrait Gallery’s exhibit of 100 Americans who epitomize cool, opened February 7. Whom have they chosen for their web page announcing the exhibition? Why, of course, Miles Davis. Take a look at the web page the National Portrait Gallery has devoted just to Miles and why they think he’s cool. As if you, the Gazette reader, didn’t already know…
In case you haven’t seen it, go here to see the Gazette’s recent post on photographer Aram Avakian, who took that portrait of Miles in the studio.
SCANDAL; “Yesterday night, after our magazine x LEICA’s photo exhibition’s talk event was held, which involved SCANDAL, the members also decisively sat down for an interview regarding their new release. It’s scheduled to be up on our magazine’s Web soon. The photo exhibition is now open at Daikanyama’s TSUTAYA store! Please come and visit!” - Rolling Stone JP
