Volume 2 (February 2015)
Earlier we shared a highlights clip from the first Edible Books Festival held by San Diego State University’s ChildLit Grad Student Association in April. We are thrilled now to publish the entire event, including an edible books contest and a fabulous program featuring two of SDSU’s esteemed professors of children’s literature — Drs. Phillip Serrato and Alida Allison — and two local children’s authors — Mara Price and James Matlack Raney. Their talks, all focusing somehow on the prevalence and significance of food/eating in children’s literature, encapsulate some of the many defining elements of this field: imaginative study, enthusiasm, and dynamism.
Please enjoy this film, filmed and edited by SDSU Television, Film and New Media Production student, Chris Porco.
