Sophie Blackall at Books of Wonder, March 19th

Sophie Blackall will be at Books of Wonder this Saturday, March 19th from 12pm-2pm to sign copies of The Crows of Pearblossom, Aldous Huxley's only story for children. Written originally as a Christmas gift in 1944 for Olivia de Haulleville, Aldous Huxley's niece, it was published as a young reader in 1967, after Huxley's death, with illustrations by Barbara Cooney. It was out of print for many years. This new picture book edition is published by Abrams.
