“Celebrating Children’s Books” Traveling Quilt Exhibit
The seven quilts in the exhibit were pieced together over a 13-year period by Muriel Feldshuh, a retired librarian and author from New York City. Each quilt is a collection of squares, 189 in all, that contain handwritten comments and original artwork from best-selling and award-winning authors and illustrators.
The exhibit has toured the country over the past decade with stops at many children’s museums, libraries and other youth-friendly public spaces. Many of the authors and illustrators participating in the Inaugural Young Readers South Dakota Festival of Books on September 25, 2014 were chosen from those featured on the quilts.
The exhibit will be on display at the Siouxland Public Library in Sioux Falls from July 1st through October 1st.
