Illustrator R.W. Alley to Celebrate Paddington’s 60th Anniversary in Barrington
Barrington Public Library invites the community to meet illustrator R.W. Alley for a lecture to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the iconic Paddington Bear, which exhibited as "Paddington Comes to America" at the Eric Carle Museum earlier this year. R.W. Alley was commissioned to illustrate a new series of Paddington picture books by HarperCollins for an American audience. His version of Paddington worked so well that, two decades later, Alley continues to illustrate the Paddington books. Books will be available for sale and signing.
