Legend of a Skinny Kid: Barack Obama and the Art of Storytelling
Thursday, March 11, 2021 from 7:30pm - 8:30pm
|Registration||Register to attend|
|Series||LSA Residential College|
Join us for this lecture by Pamela Reynolds, professor emerita from Johns Hopkins University and honorary professor at the University of Cape Town. Literature for and about children, from the earliest folk tales, has always addressed life and death. In diverse genres from horror story to high adventure, from rags to riches, young heroes sustain themselves in the face of adult decisions regarding scarcity (food and water), violence, illness, and abuse.
Register above, and we'll email you a Zoom link approximately 24 hours prior to the event. Registration closes at noon on March 11th.
This lecture is part of a course offered by the Residential College, and examines how early reading mediated crises challenging the future lives of U.S. presidents and first ladies — from Andrew Jackson and James Garfield to Eleanor Roosevelt and Barack Obama.
