Looking at Children’s Books: Fairy tales?
- 4 May 2016 5:30-6:30pm
Brian will discuss the use of popular lore in the works of Hans Christian Andersen and the Brothers Grimm and its illustration. The talks will be illustrated by material from Brian's collections of books by these writers, whose work he has also translated.
Looking at Children’s Books is a fascinating sequence of talks with Brian Alderson, a pioneer of children’s literature studies in Britain and a respected and knowledgeable writer, reviewer and translator.
The Looking at Children’s Books talk series are presented by Newcastle University’s Children’s Literature Unit and Robinson Library in association with Seven Stories: National Centre for Children’s Books.
