Dear Library Patrons, The mission of NYPL is to inspire lifelong learning, advance knowledge, and strengthen our communities. Government support only pays for a portion of our work, so we rely on you to help - from stocking our shelves with amazing books, expanding our e-Book selection, classes, events, or even making free WiFi accessible to all. We are trying to raise $500,000 by December 31: an ambitious goal, but one that will fund incredible learning and reading in our community. Please consider donating to help keep our services free to all New Yorkers in 2015 >>

From the time Pippin could hold a piece of charcoal, he loved to draw, but when he returned home from World War I, he couldn’t even lift his right arm. How did he become an artist whose work is displayed in museums and galleries across the country? Full color illustrations.
