Some of you who read this blog know that children’s literature is one of my special interests. So I thought I’d share two bits of children’s lit-related news with you.
First, the most recent issue of Transcript is devoted to children’s literature. Transcript describes itself as “the trilingual European Internet Review of Books and Writing” and it is “published by Literature Across Frontiers at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth,” and “funded by the European Union's Culture 2000 fund.”
Second, Stories, the Centre for Children’s Books has launched a new website which gives “access to records of its extensive collection of artwork and archives.” Seven Stories is in Newcastle upon Tyne and people can see exhibits and do research there.
