COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - An acclaimed illustrator of children’s books is donating her collection of artwork, manuscripts and papers to the University of South Carolina Libraries.

Selections from the collection by illustrator Anita Lobel are now on display at the Thomas Cooper Library on the university’s Columbia campus.

Elizabeth Suddeth, the director of the Library’s department of rare books, is scheduled to discuss Lobel’s works on Thursday at 10 a.m. in the Thomas Cooper Library.

Lobel won a Caldecott Honor Medal for her childhood memoir, “No Pretty Pictures,” which recounts her experiences as a Jewish child living in Poland during World War II, as well as her capture and time in a concentration camp.

Lobel is being awarded a Thomas Cooper Society Medal on Nov. 17 at a dinner open to the public.
