6th Annual Children's Literature Symposium

The 6th Annual Children’s Literature Symposium will be held on Friday and Saturday, February 3rd and 4th.  This year, the Children’s Literature Symposium brings together presenters from across the United States and internationally who address the topic of “variants” in children’s and young adult literature and media: books with plots that build upon folklore or other previously written tales.

The Keynote Speaker for this year’s symposium is Dr. Perry Nodelman: Professor Emeritus at the University of Winnipeg; author of Words About Pictures: The Narrative Art of Children’s Picture Books, The Pleasures of Children’s Literature (with co-author, Mavis Reimer), and The Hidden Adult: Defining Children’s Literature.
