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!
Mother's Day is coming up on Sunday, May 9th and we can't think of a better time in history to celebrate moms! Moms are modern superheroes and we think they deserve special recognition for all the extra hours on the clock this past year. Our 2021 Mother's Day gift guide has fun suggestions on how to make this year extra special for your mom, grandma and all the deserving ladies in your life, with unique gift ideas like Maya Angelou socks, Women of Star Trek puzzles and the cutest little RBG baby onesie for new and expecting moms. And so much more! Proceeds from our Mother's Day gift guide help support UltraViolet feminist organization, giving back to women and girls with every sale. Happy Mother's Day to all you wonderful hardworking moms!
