On Friday, May 29th we held a popup gallery in the Salomon Room of the New York Public Library to celebrate the upcoming launch of the new NYPL ebook app containing Recovering the Classics covers! Thanks to an initiative with the White House, the app will be distributed to students and libraries across the country. With the help of our wonderful partners at NYPL, the National Book Foundation, the Digital Public Library of America (and many more) we were able to put on a great event in one of the nicest rooms we'd ever been in. It was attended by several hundred people in media and publishing -- including the chief operating officer of Macmillan's trade division, an executive vice president of The New York Times, and many folks attending the BookExpo America convention. Live music was provided by Daniel Park.
Checkout some photos from the event below, and remember, all the art is available for sale as posters, t-shirts, and more to support the artists involved!
With students getting ready for graduation and teachers across the country fighting for higher pay, we’ve been thinking a lot about teachers. We're soliciting designs that celebrate teachers with messages of support and thanks. Submit your design during the month of May to be featured!
