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.
