During a 2001 visit to Norman Rockwell Museum, Mary Whalen Leonard shared her memories of the artist, who she got to know during his time in Arlington, Vermont during the 1940s. As a child, Whalen posed for several of Rockwell's best-loved works, including "Girl at Mirror," "Day in the Life of a Little Girl," and "Girl with Black Eye."
On Saturday, November 25, 2017, you can meet Mary and Will Lach, Vice President and Editorial Director of Abbeville Press at the Museum. Join them for the launch event for two new books for young readers from Abbeville, Norman Rockwell’s A Day in the Life of a Girl and A Day in the Life of a Boy.
