Original Raskin Drawings on Display

Ellen Ermingard Raskin was born in Milwaukee and received the Newbery Medal for her 1978 book, The Westing Game.

Eleven original Ellen Raskin drawings from her book Nothing Ever Happens On My Block were recently loaned from Central Library to the James Watrous Gallery of the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts and Letters. The James Watrous Gallery is located in the Overture Center for the Arts in downtown Madison. The gallery is highlighting the work of some of Wisconsin's most accomplished children's book illustrators.

Raskin's original drawings are normally housed in the Richard E. and Lucile Krug Rare Books Room at the Central Library and will be on display in Madison until December 9, 2009.
