Description

In this riveting and emotionally charged talk, Sendak provides a retrospective on the struggles of his early career as an artist, describing the "great giant ladies versus the suits" of the publishing establishment, discusses the symptoms of depression as they correlate to the creative process, and tells an amazing story of his search for Rosie. On the cusp of his 75th birthday, Sendak describes his life as one "obsessed with childhood," and concludes, "over the years everything in my creative life has gradually been strengthened and newly passioned".
