WHAT THE NIGHT SINGS: Paintings from the Novel by Vesper Stamper
September 22 – October 26

A collection of illustrations from the novel What the Night Sings by Vesper Stamper, about two teen Holocaust survivors who meet on the day of their liberation from Bergen Belsen camp, and what it takes for them to rebuild their lives from the ground up.

In What the Night Sings, author-illustrator Vesper Stamper creates black and white, sepia-toned ink wash paintings that call to mind the archival documentation of the Holocaust during World War II, while using metaphoric imagery which describes the inner landscape of the characters.

The longlist for the 2018 National Book Award for Young People’s Literature, announced on September 12, includes WHAT THE NIGHT SINGS by Vesper Stamper!

Read more here. Finalists will be announced on October 10, and the winner on November 14.
