About the Event
Eminent children’s literature historian Leonard Marcus’s Golden Legacy: How Golden Books Won Children’s Hearts, Changed Publishing Forever, and Became an American Icon Along the Way chronicles the fascinating story of the creation, marketing, and worldwide impact of Little Golden Books, the most popular children’s books of all time.
Launched during the dark days of World War II, Golden Books such as The Poky Little Puppy were an instant sensation. Diane Muldrow, editorial director at Golden Books, will join Marcus in conversation, bringing a unique perspective to the history and significance of the beloved series.
This event is made possible through the generous support of the Kerlan Friends, The Friends of the University of Minnesota Libraries, and Penguin Random House.
