March 6, 2017 at 6:00 PM: Join David Small and Sarah Stewart as they stop by the National Center for Children's Illustrated Literature (NCCIL) to celebrate the NCCIL's twentieth anniversary year! 

Beloved artist David Small and his lovely wife, Sarah Stewart have long been supporters of the NCCIL and its mission. Small’s works were first exhibited at the NCCIL in the spring of 2001. The exhibition, A David Small World, was updated in the spring of 2007. The NCCIL will showcase a 
sampling of art from this exhibition which is still touring nationwide. Hope you can join us in 
welcoming them back to the NCCIL
