August 8: We will be discussing Minders of Make Believe: Idealists, Entrepreneurs, and the Shaping of American Children's Literature by Leonard Marcus. This newly published book is considered by many to be the definitive "must read" for anyone connected with children's literature. It's a pretty hefty book (315 pages + notes & Index = 402 total) so you might want to get started reading. I've already started it, and I'm fascinated!!
September 18: We had a great discussion of Leonard Marcus' Minders of Make Believe at our September meeting.....all agreed that it is a 'must-read' for anyone connected in any way with children's literature: authors, illustrators, librarians, editors, teachers, etc.
