Not Just for Kids: How Children’s Literature Inspires Bold Conversations

Tue, 04/18/2017 - 6:00pm - 7:30pm

Children’s books such as "Curious George" and "Goodnight Moon" are often beloved by children, sparking their imaginations and providing warmth and comfort. But books like these can also inspire adults, helping us to imagine ourselves in a new way and think about society from a fresh perspective. In this talk, University of Washington lecturer Anu Taranath will showcase children’s books from around the world as well as diverse communities in the US, inviting audiences to take a closer look at kids’ books and suggesting how we adults might also learn new lessons about navigating our complicated world.  This event is co-sponsored by Humanities Washington and the Friends of the Tumwater Timberland Library.

The Tumwater Timberland Library is located at 7023 New Market St SW, accessible via Intercity Transit route 12/13.  Call 360-943-7790 for more information.
