Blank and children’s literature class say kid’s books are for adults too


On March 13, Trine University librarian Michelle Blank and her children’s literature class presented their talk titled “Not-Just-for-Children Literature.”

A large number of students, faculty, and community members were in attendance. The video above is their complete talk with the question and answer discussion that followed. For a more detailed description of the talk, see below.

Think back to you favorite children’s book. Maybe it was about monsters or adventures or sharks (if you were a 2nd grade boy) or even pigeons. Professor Blank’s Children’s Literature class has been exploring ways students, teachers, and others can share great books. Come to hear (and maybe participate in) some of these wonderful book experiences. Remember, children’s literature isn’t just for children.
