Storied Friends: Marguerite Henry and Wesley Dennis
Apr 30, 2022 - Sep 11, 2022
Storied Friends: Marguerite Henry and Wesley Dennis explores the literary partnership that brought Misty, Sham, and many other equine friends into the hearts of youths everywhere. For over two decades the pair published fifteen books together, many of which have endured the test of time and remain popular classics today. Storied Friends features twelve classics by Henry in multiple languages paired with illustrations from Dennis’s A Portfolio of Horses and a selection of reviews and paraphernalia from the Wesley Dennis Archives. Viewers are invited to spend time reading for nostalgia or pick up a classic for the first time in the exhibition's reading nook and be immersed in Henry’s storytelling and Dennis's illustrated world.
