A visit with Maurice Sendak

On July 19, 2003, Roger Sutton and Richard Asch visited Maurice Sendak at his home in Connecticut. Roger conducted an interview that appeared in the November/December 2003 Horn Book Magazine: Special Issue: Sendak at 75. Here are three photos (taken by Richard) that chronicle this meeting of the minds.
