Abstract:

Erica Bruchko, Kim Collins (and Beth Shoemaker, who couldn’t be with us in person) presented, “Into the Archives: Children’s and Young Adult Highlights in the Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library at Emory University”, moderated by Jennifer King, as part of the Children’s Literature Association 2022 meeting in Atlanta. Children’s literature is not a discrete collecting interest at Emory, rather items appear within these other collecting areas identified here: African American History & Culture, Emory University Archives, Literary & Poetry Collections, Political, Cultural, & Social Movements, Southern History, and Rare Books For instance, within our black history and culture collections are examples of early texts written for African American children (example, children's books from the Carter G. Woodson Library, founder of Black History Month), within out literary and poetry collections (works written for children authored by high profile writers (examples, Richard Blanco, Alice Walker, and Mari Evans’ children’s books), within our collections of Political and Cultural Movements [example, Equal Rights Drawing Book for Suffragettes and their Friends) and Southern History [primers]. We’ll be discussing selected items in each of these categories, but we’ll place particular emphasis on our rare book collection. These texts often come to the library by gift or purchase from a collector. Please keep these various collecting interests in mind as they’ll help frame our larger discussion.
