This is part of a series focusing on childhood classics. The idea of special literature for children dates only to the nineteenth century, when writers began to produce both fantasy and realistic family stories for young readers. The remaining book in the series is “The Wind in the Willows” by Kenneth Grahame which will be discussed on Tuesday, April 16.

The series is sponsored by the Kansas Humanities Council (KHC), a nonprofit cultural organization, as part of its Talk About Literature in Kansas (TALK) program. KHC is furnishing the books and discussion leaders for the Hutchinson TALK series. For more information about KHC, visit .
