Friday, April 30, 7:30 pm

Zoom online

Interview with Q&A and social time to follow

In this interview, Professor Peter Hunt will explore how attitudes to books change over the years and how that affects what scholars need to (or are able to) put in critical editions. Professor Hunt will discuss his own experience creating a critical edition of The Secret Garden and ways that an editor of a classic work for young people today can deal with complex challenges and thorny ethical questions. Hollins children's literature alumna, Jennifer Davis Taylor, will moderate.
