The Russians are coming.
A large contingent of writers, publishers and literary figures will be in New York City during Book Expo America 2011 under the Read Russia umbrella.
Fans of children book art will want to stop by the Read Russia Gallery at 172, Duane Street between June 3 and June 7 to discover works created between 1881 and 1939 by Elizabeth Boehm, Ivan Bilibin, Dmitry Mitrokhin, El Lissitzky, Nikolai Kupriyanov, Gustav Klucis and others.
I am not sure what the opening hours are or if admission is free or not.
