Larry Sipe collection found a new home!

Larry Sipe’s collection of picture books and children’s literature has found a new home at the International Youth Library in Munich. Processing the complete collection of about 4,200 books was no mean feat, but with determination and international help, we were able to complete the cataloguing process in December 2013.
We would like to send our heartfelt thanks to all generous supporters for making this dream come true!
To celebrate the completed cataloguing process and to offer our visitors the chance to look at the highlights of Larry’s picture book collection, we will be hosting an exhibition called „Knuffle Bunny Meets Rosa Parks. Award-Winning American Picture Books from the Lawrence R. Sipe Collection“ from March 15th to April 27th, 2014. Larry’s sister and her family, as well as renowned illustrators Christopher Myers and David Wiesner, Prof. Junko Yokota, Prof. Donna Sayers Adomat, and other international guests will be present for the exhibition opening on Friday March 14th, 2014. We cordially invite you to join us for this event.
