Seth Lerer was featured on the Wednesday July 2 edition of WBUR’s On Point with guest host Jane Clayson to discuss his new book Children’s Literature: A Reader’s History from Aesop to Harry Potter. More than just a historical account of the iconic works of children’s literature, as Clayson notes, Lerer’s book can be read as a history of childhood itself as children are indelibly molded by the tales they hear and read—stories they will one day share with their own sons and daughters.
Listen to the podcast of their fascinating discussion about children’s literature and what it tells us about growing up on the WBUR website.
Also read an excerpt from the book.
