She has received more than 300 awards, including the National Book Award, four Newbery Honors, three Coretta Scott King medals, the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award, and the Hans Christian Andersen Award. Her lecture is in conjunction with the library exhibition "Animals Are Us: Anthropomorphism in Children’s Literature; Celebrating the Peter J. Solomon Collection.
