Garth Williams: Preliminary Title Illustration for Over and Over

Author Charlotte Zolotow passed away this week at the age of 98. Garth Williams illustrated her 1963 book Over and Over. This preliminary title sketch is from a collection of twenty-one preliminary sketches sold together last year at Heritage auctions.

Maybe you haven't heard, but this week is the fiftieth anniversary of the assassination of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy. I haven't said much on the subject, but I do have this one blog post here.

Maybe you haven't heard this either, but "Catching Fire" opens in theaters nationwide on Friday. My reviews of the books in The Hunger Games series may be found here.
