A new exhibit at the society’s museum features the work of 14 authors and illustrators of children’s books. The exhibit includes the local authors Berta and Elmer Hader who authored the first children’s book by an American. The exhibit will include fascinating stories about the authors and illustrators, reviews of some of their  noteworthy books, and many stunning illustrations. Several of the books are set in Nyack, with scenes from decades ago, but still recognizable.

The grand opening of the exhibit is 1-4p on June 4 and continuing on subsequent Saturdays. The museum is located at 50 Piermont Avenue, Nyack with an entrance through the Nyack Library parking lot.
