Constructing the Canon of Children's Literature: Beyond Library Walls and Ivory Towers

By Anne Lundin | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

My life's work, that's what I've called this book, as it weaves together so many threads. My family and my department are loving people behind me.

I am grateful to the University of Wisconsin, School of Library and Information Studies, for summer research grants and a semester sabbatical. My department, led by Louise Robbins, is very supportive. Colleagues Christine Pawley and Wayne Wiegand inspired me to explore children's library history and print culture history. Jack Zipes encouraged this research out of his own interest to know more, and Beverly Lyon Clark and I share conjoined interests. My relationship with the Children's Literature Association has been vital to my sense of community in the field.

Intertextually, this book draws together material from earlier publications on Victorian picture books and women's library history. I am grateful to the editors of The Lion and the Unicorn for permission to reprint "Everygirl's Good Deeds: The Heroics of Nancy Drew" from the January 2003 issue.
