James Castle Collection and Archive LP Reaches Settlement with Scholastic Inc.

Scholastic Inc., the global children’s publishing, education and media company, and the James Castle Collection and Archive, LP, an independent archive that owns and maintains the artwork, copyrights, and historical documents of artist James Castle, have mutually agreed to dismiss all pending litigation surrounding the book Silent Days, Silent Dreams by Allen Say.
