Let's go to the movies

Lolly Robinson, who teaches children's literature at the Harvard ed. school along with her myriad responsibilities here at the Horn Book, has put together the premiere of The Library of the Early Mind, a documentary about children's literature today. The Askwith Forum series will be presenting this showing for FREE and it will be followed by a panel discussion, moderated by Lolly, with the film's director and producer and some of its STARS, um, interviewees. There will also be a book signing and reception. Please come. Tuesday, October 19th, 5:30-8:00PM, Askwith Hall, Harvard University.

How about a West Coast premiere?

Here's a link to the trailer. The filmmakers are working on more screenings.

No need to book ahead -- just come on over!

I would love to see the film, but I don't live anywhere near Harvard. Any possibilities for Netflix streaming, or NetU (I think that's what it's called - University lectures streamed through my Roku box)? I know many librarians here in Alabama who would be very interested in this film!

Anonymous 8:48: no, we can't stream for copyright reasons. You could contact Steven Withrow, co-producer, about setting up a screening in your area. You'll find more info and Steven's email address at http://childrenslitproject.wordpress.com/about/
