Bruce Handy - Wild Things: The Joy of Reading Children's Literature as an Adult

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, November 28, 2017 at 7:00 pm

Rereading iconic children’s books as an adult, Handy, a contributing editor at Vanity Fair and a father of two, finds himself in a magical tesseract that’s part a child’s wonder and part an adult’s informed appreciation of literary masterpieces. Starting with Goodnight Moon and ending with Charlotte’s Web, Handy proceeds from classic picture books by Eric Carle, Dr. Seuss, and Shel Silverstein to chapter books by Beverly Cleary, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Louisa May Alcott, and many others. His spirited weave of personal anecdotes, biographical sketches, and consideration of the wider cultural context of these books leads to fresh insights about beloved literary figures.
