Celebrating "From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler" 50 Years Later


"From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler" by E. L. Konigsburg is a living legend of a book, and generations of children and adults are grateful to be among its readers throughout its 50-year history. Celebrate this Newbery Award-winning classic about a sister and brother who find themselves caught in a mysterious adventure after running away to the Metropolitan Museum. The event takes place at New York City's Symphony Space on Sunday, March 5 at 1:00 p.m. with illustrious writers (also big-time fans) Blue Balliet ("Chasing Vermeer"), Chris Grabenstein ("Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library"), Wendy Mass ("The Candymakers"), and Alexandra London ("The Wild Ones"). Authors will lead a lively discussion of the book while audience members participate in a creative writing project. For ticket information, visit
