Students in Lisa Makman’s English 313 course, Children’s Literature and the Invention of Modern Childhood, curated this exhibit of classic stories for children. The exhibit focuses on seven classic stories: Aladdin, Alice in Wonderland, Cinderella, Hansel and Gretel, the Little Mermaid, Little Red Riding Hood, and Peter Pan. Drawing on the rich collection of children’s literature in the Special Collections Research Center, the books range from late nineteenth century editions to contemporary pop-up books. By showcasing different takes on each story, the exhibit explores the variation in how these tales are told and illustrated.

Join us for the exhibit opening on April 10 at 1pm.
