Documentary on Children’s Literature, Coming This Fall

September 10, 2010

Directed by Edward J. Delaney, “Library of the Early Mind” features almost 40 well-known and celebrated authors and illustrators in the field of children’s literature and will premiere this fall. From the film’s website:

“Library of the Early Mind” is an exploration of the art and impact of children’s literature on our kids, our culture, and ourselves.

From the first stories we hear told to us to those childhood heroes that stay with us a lifetime, the impact on our culture runs deeper than what we might expect. ‘No one suspects the children’s writer,” says author and illustrator Mo Willems, a former ‘Sesame Street’ writer.'”

Authors and illustrators featured in the film include Lemony Snicket, Lois Lowry, R.L. Stine, David Small, Lane Smith, Jane Yolen, Mo Willems, and many more.
