THE BATTLE OVER CHILDREN’S LITERATURE

What books should children read, is a question that parents, teachers, and even clergymen have wrestled with for centuries. But this is a question that cannot be answered apart from larger questions about the nature of children and the purpose of stories. How do children learn? How is virtue cultivated? What is the moral imagination and how do we nurture that? What is the nature and function of stories? How should we think about the books we hand our children and students? What should we think about the current trend of politicizing children’s literature? And, further, how should we respond to attacks on classic children’s literature?

Keynote speaker, author and professor Vigen Guroian leads Angelina Stanford, Cindy Rollins, and Thomas Banks into the fray in this Battle of the Books.

Join us April 7-9!

Be encouraged. Be equipped. Be enlightened.

Conference registration includes lifetime access to conference recordings and an exclusive conference discussion forum on Canvas.
