In case you're a little burnt from fashion week (it happens to the best of us), check in with your inner child this evening c/o children's book illustrator and artist David Foote. Get your fantasy pants on and head to the historic Rizzoli Bookstore tonight for the release and book-signing of Modern Fairies, Dwarves, Goblins & Other Nasties, written by Lesley M. M. Blume. Foote's Edward Gorey-esque, sinister (but still kid-friendly) illustrations will be on display to set the mood and precede the October 27th exhibition of his new show, "Madonna and Child".
Tuesday, September 14, 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.; RSVP: email@example.com Rizzoli Bookstore, 31 West 57th Street (between 5th and 6th avenues); 212-759-2424.
