While children’s authors aren’t often perceived as activists, Where the Wild Things Are creator Maurice Sendak doesn’t duck controversy—his latest book, We Are All in the Dumps With Jack and Guy, addresses the problems faced by homeless kids. In today’s “Maurice Sendak and the Challenge of the Creative Process,” he’ll discuss his artistic modus operandi as well as his sociological stance. Because topics include “some of the toughest issues facing children today—fear, trauma, war, and death,” his lecture comes with a disclaimer suggesting that only kids 15 and older attend. At 6 p.m. at the Museum of Natural History’s Baird Auditorium, 10th & Constitution Ave. NW. $12. (202) 357-2700. (NodB)
