Library of the Early Mind

Gayle Forman just posted a trailer for an upcoming documentary about children’s literature called Library of the Early Mind on her Facebook page. I watched the trailer, and then found the blog for the film: Children’s Lit Project. On the blog, there are numerous interviews with authors, illustrators, reviewers, editors, and publishers. The whole project looks absolutely incredible. It is scheduled for release this year, but the only screening listed so far will be at Harvard University on October 19th. I hope that more screenings or other forms of distributions will be listed soon. (Perhaps it will make its way to Cornell!) This appears to be a documentary worth keeping an eye on if you are interested in hearing some of the primary figures in the field of contemporary children’s lit speak about issues relevant to the discipline.
