Pequot Library, 720 Pequot Avenue

Join Chief Librarian and Exhibition Curator, Christine Catallo, for a guided tour of our Special Collections exhibition, Magic, Mayhem and Maturity: The Growth of Youth Fantasy Literature. Learn about the emergence and evolution of youth fantasy literature through books spanning fairy tales to 19th century works like Alice in Wonderland and The Wizard of Oz to more modern stories like Harry Potter, Children of Blood and Bone and The Gilded Ones. This exhibition also explores how these stories have evolved to tackle this transition in a more frank manner and, significantly, to embrace all voices. Registration required. Limited to 8 people.

This exhibition and its related programming are supported by the Connecticut Humanities.
