About this Display

The Center for the Study of Children's Literature's Summer Institute is this weekend (Friday July 26 - Sunday July 28, 2013). Held every other year, this program offers students an opportunity to work with authors, illustrators and editors in the field of children's literature. This year's Institute will center around the theme of "Love Letters."

The 2013 Mary Nagel Sweetser Lecture will be delivered by award-winning author Lois Lowry. Speakers will include Daniel Handler and Maira Kalman, M. T. Anderson, Shane Evans, Jack Gantos, Jo Knowles, Jason Chin, Jeanne Birdsall, Wong Herbert Yee, David Hyde Costello, Deborah Heiligman, and Vicky Smith.

Throughout the month of July, Associate Professor Amy Pattee, author of Reading the Adolescent Romance: Sweet Valley High and the Young Adult Novel, has taught a graduate symposium to Children's Literature students, culminating in this weekend's Institute.
