Fall Athenæum Series: Changes in Children’s Literature

The Kent Library Athenaeum Series continues with Dr. Debra Porter presenting on Changes in Children’s Literature. Stories have been told for as long as humans have had language. Broad themes such as friendship, love, and conflict remain constant of stories but as the years pass, these themes are treated differently. During this presentation, Dr. Porter will present children’s literature from the past and the present to demonstrate how these themes have remained unchanged but are presented quite differently today. This event will occur at Noon on Wednesday, September 25 in Sadie’s Place on the main level of Kent Library. It is open to all and refreshments will be served.
