Flannery O'Connor - ''People without hope not only don’t write novels, but what is more to the point, they don’t read them. They don’t take long looks at anything, because they lack the courage. The way to despair is to refuse to have any kind of experience, and the novel, of course, is a way to have experience''
Maurice Sendak's legend will live on right here in Philadelphia. Selections of his illustrations and manuscripts are always on view in the Maurice Sendak Gallery at the Rosenback Museum & Library. (Photo courtesy Maurice Sendak)
