The Life and Work of Maurice Sendak


In recognition of the 51st anniversary of the publication of "Where the Wild Things Are," we review the life and work of the late children's author. Our guests: Steven Brezzo, an author, critic and museum curator who created the first-ever exhibit of Sendak's work with collaborator Ted Geisel (aka Dr. Seuss); and Ellen Riordan, a librarian for the Enoch Pratt Free Library, and the president of the Association for Library Service to Children.
