In fact, we have lost count of the times we’ve been told to go back to our own countries, without regard for the fact that many U.S. Latino families — especially those with indigenous rather than Hispanic roots — have ties to and history in this land that predate those of English descent.

Maurice Sendak collection to leave Philadelphia

English
Main Topic: 
Body: 

Philadelphia has long had a special connection to Maurice Sendak. The Rosenbach Museum and Library has housed the author's collection of drawings, proofs and manuscripts — more than 10,000 pieces — since the 1970s, and has hosted many exhibitions of his work over the years, including a 2009 major retrospective. But Sendak died in 2012, and the long-standing agreement the artist/writer had with the Rosenbach is being superseded by his will. Most of the Rosenbach's Sendak collection will go to Connecticut.
