“Children have to be brave to survive what the world does to them.”
— Writer and illustrator Maurice Sendak

We missed the Wednesday benefit for Wear the Wild Things are, but wear your fancy wolf suit  anyway to celebrate  Director Spike Jonze and screenwriter and local author and tutor extraordinaire,  Dave Eggers.  The two discussed the new  film and all of the proceeds will benefit 826 Valencia, the writing and tutoring center for young people.

The psychology behind Sendak’s classic picture book “Where the Wild Things” Are is examined in The Psychologist.
