On June 10th, Michael Rosen, who has a long association with The Thurber House and has edited many a modern Thurber book (including the one pictured here and the fabulous A Mile And A Half Of Lines: The Art of James Thurber) will be appearing, online, in an event described this way on the Thurber House site:
Michael and special guest readers will read from Collected Fables, an anthology of James Thurber’s beloved fables that includes a foreword by Keith Olbermann and ten previously uncollected or unpublished stories. Featuring Thurber’s original illustrations, Collected Fables is a must-have for Thurber lovers, scholars, and readers of all ages.
