This groundbreaking exhibition of Appalachian children’s literature examines seminal titles published since the 1800’s. Come explore our region’s literary heritage and see how children’s literature tells the story of Appalachia.
This is a traveling exhibit from East Tennessee Historical Society and Knox County Public Library.
Perhaps more than any other region, Appalachia has captured our nation’s imagination. It’s a land where the blue smoke of the mountains, the self-sufficiency of life in a holler, and the singsong of an enthralling storyteller come together in a near mythic culture. Appalachia is a land about which stories are told.
You’ll feel like you’re walking through the pages of a storybook. Children can stand eye-to-eye with characters from Journey Cake Ho, A Mountain Rose, When Otter Tricked the Rabbit, When I Was Young, and others.
Located in Memory Lane.
