Carle Museum Planning with Barbara and Don Elleman

We met Barbara and Don Elleman this noon for lunch at Burdick's in Walpole, New Hampshire. Walpole is the home of filmmaker Ken Burns and a wonderful restaurant and chocolate shop. It's also a halfway meeting point for the Ellemans and us.

Barbara is curating "Drawings from the Heart: Tomie dePaola Turns 75," a retrospective exhibition at the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, July 3 - November 1, 2009.

It now appears as if most of the activities with Tomie "in the house" will be on Sunday, July 19, and a weekend in mid-October (the weekend yet to be determined).

Since the Ellemans are close friends, it was great to use the Carle exhibition as an excuse to get together.
