A Visit to the de Grummond

An ALA Smore report from Caitlin Jacobson, June 2018

An extra day to play!

My husband and I enjoy road trips, so we arranged a tour in advance to the de Grummond Collection, which gave us a reason to drive north out of New Orleans. Dear ALA friends Bina and Vivian joined us. It's about 90 minutes, but we took scenic routes to make the most of our trip.


The collection is housed at the University of Southern Mississippi, and features art and writings from some of the most beloved children's books.
