Margaret Wise Brown penned Goodnight Moon, The Runaway Bunny, and other beloved children’s tales. If you’re a fan of her books or, like us, you’re always game for a literary-themed walking tour, save the date this Sunday, May 23rd.

Our friend Jennifer Hart at has details on a walking tour being given by Leonard Marcus, the author of Margaret Wise Brown: Awakened By the Moon, in celebration of what would have been Brown’s 100th birthday. Sites on the tour include places in New York City’s Greenwich Village neighborhood where she lived, taught school children, and even had cocktails with another famous children’s book scribe — Curious George creator and illustrator H.A. Rey.
