I was lucky to be able to travel to Manhattan not only to see my beloved book editor Tamar Brazis at Abrams, and to meet with MoMA about a new book, but to visit the incredibly lovely Louise Bourgeois exhibit at MoMA, featuring the work that inspired my book, CLOTH LULLABY.
Best headline ever. Thank you to Joanne Chan and her inspired team for the interview in the latest, gorgeous issue of ILLUSTORIA magazine.
It's been a good week for Cloth Lullaby: a third starred review, this one from The Horn Book ("Novesky returns to territory in which she shines"), a lovely review in The New York Times, my first ever, written by the marvelous Maria Popova of Brain Pickings, who says, "Cloth Lullaby is one of the loveliest picture books I've encountered," as well as a lovely review in Brain Pickings, itself. And a feature I wrote for The Guardian. Wow.
I was surprised and delighted to see the cover of Abrams Books for Young Readers' spring catalog. Cloth Lullaby, The Woven Life of Louise Bourgeois, will be published March 1st!
My new book, Cloth Lullaby, The Woven Life of Louise Bourgeois, illustrated by Isabelle Arsenault, will be published by Abrams Books for Young Readers in May, 2016. It is a beautiful book. I can't wait to share it.
