We are thrilled to announce that, once again, the Society will be hosting an in-person celebration of The Original Art! It will be a joy to welcome the children’s book community back into our building and to share a marvelous display of illustrations from this year’s top books.
Because of continuing concerns about COVID-19, the Society has implemented important protocols for in-person events. To follow these protocols and allow attendees to celebrate in a safe and healthy environment, the 2021 Original Art Reception will be held on two consecutive nights: Wednesday, November 17th from 6:30pm to 8:30pm, and Thursday, November 18th from 6:30pm to 8:30pm.
Important: To allow for social distancing, only featured artists, art directors/ designers, publishers, and editors whose names appear on the In-Show list are eligible to attend the reception this year. Unfortunately, this year’s reception is not open to the public, and guests will not be able to attend.
Eligible attendees will receive a private RSVP. Note that the event is free for attendees. However, only 100 tickets will be available for each night. They will be offered online, on a first-come, first-served basis, and they are not transferable. Each attendee is eligible for only one ticket, one night.
If you believe you are eligible to attend but did not receive the private RSVP email, please contact us.
