Pictures of the Week | A Margaret Wise Brown Tattoo

At a dinner in celebration of her forthcoming book, Forever or a Day (Chronicle, Mar. 2018), Sarah Jacoby was seen sporting a tattoo of a rabbit from an illustration she discovered at the Margaret Wise Brown Archives at Hollins University in Roanoke, VA. Brown was an alumnus of Hollins, which today hosts a Graduate Program in Children’s Literature and sponsors the Margaret Wise Brown Prize in Children’s Literature.
