Dick Michel:  George Cruikshank
N.O.B.S. Forums 
Thursday, March 19, 7pm
~ third Thursdays ~
George Cruikshank (1792-1878), in addition to his paintings and caricatures, illustrated over 860 books.  In fact, one British scholar has stated that Cruikshank is not only one of the classic illustrators of the period 1820-1860, but is, indeed, the greatest British book illustrator of all time.  Dick Michel, NOBS and Rowfant member, will comment briefly on Cruikshank as a book illustrator and share from his own collection numerous examples of Cruikshank’s work.  Please come, look, and see what you think!

Bill McCullam: Postmodern Literature for Children 

N.O.B.S. Forums 
Thursday, April 16, 7pm
~ third Thursdays ~
This program will examine postmodern literature for children from Lewis Carroll to Dr. Seuss. Perhaps all children’s literature can be considered experimental, in the sense of being outside the normal narrative frame. However, the postmodernists made deliberate efforts to provoke the reader by making the narrative unfamiliar. For instance, the writer Chris Crutcher, in a recent book, has himself appear as a fictional character.  Members of the audience are encouraged to bring a single book they feel is postmodern.  Bill McCullam is co-owner of Cattermole 20th Century Children’s Books.

N.O.B.S. Forums

Long before Dick and Jane was McGuffey.  McGuffey's Readers marked a generation of young children, and their worn tan covers can bring an old-timer back to childhood in a flash.  More than nostalgia items, however, McGuffey shaped several generations and the entire field of American education, with at least 120 million copies sold between 1836 and 1960.  Come learn more about the history and impact of these reading primers.  $3 suggested donation. Rescheduled from cancelled date of  Nov. 20, 2008.
