"Wild Things" Reading with Betsy Bird

 

Wild Things! Acts of Mischief in Children's Literature dispels any notion that children’s literature is apolitical and humorless.” -VOYA Magazine

Three creative minds collaborated to write this insider tell-all about the mischievous boys and girls who’ve written some of your favorite contemporary children’s books. Bank Street Bookstore hosts one of them, Betsy Bird, on Saturday, September 27 at 2:00 p.m. to discuss one of the fall season's widely anticipated releases.

“This book is a mischievous, risky, highly amusing, disturbing, and informative romp. I say, suppress it.”
—Jules Feiffer

Wild Things, written by leading kids’ lit bloggers Bird, Julie Danielson and Peter Sieruta, goes behind the scenes with anecdotes and backstories highlighting some of the most beloved children's book authors and illustrators in the post-Harry Potter children’s publishing world. Get the inside story on some of the most controversial children’s authors working today.

“The discussion of censorship is particularly thoughtful.”-Kirkus Reviews
