    The Authors and Illustrators exhibit is fantastic! It was so interesting to read William Steig’s letter about being terrified to make an acceptance speech after being awarded the Caldecott Medal. Please, please, add more to the list! Thank you.

    Love the virtual archives. Very special — totally intriguing. Fun to read the diary from the summer of 1921 with the Book Caravan! Thank you, Lolly and all.

    Thank you for re-creating this virtual museum website to explore “oldies but goodies!” You have included some of my all-time favorite authors in their prime.

    Please note the spelling of Laura INGALLS Wilder…. that’s a common error in journalism but shouldn’t have been on The Horn Book’s page.

    Connecting with Wilder, could you please reprint the December 1953 issue that was solely devoted to Wilder and the release of the “Little House” uniform illustrated editions by Garth Williams? Also in September 1943 there was a Wilder portrait and tribute written by Irene Smith that is worthy of posting in this online museum.

    Next year in 2017 there will be celebrations and conferences on Laura Ingalls Wilder, marking her 150th birthday. Does The Horn Book plan a feature article on Wilder in 2017?

    Thank you again for updating the virtual museum and keeping these classic authors alive for future readers of children’s literature.

    To Connie:
    Thanks for pointing out the spelling mistake — now fixed! — and asking about the Laura Ingalls Wilder issue. Some time ago, that reprint was taken over by William Anderson. I’ll try to find out its current legal status because I don’t see it offered anywhere online (except at exorbitant prices!). Maybe we can arrange to have it reprinted to coincide with next year’s big birthday. No promises, but I will see what we can do!

  5. I would also be interested in any reprint of the Laura Ingalls Wilder December 1953 issue. Thank you!
