Niall Nance-Carroll on the history of Winnie-the-Pooh
You probably grew up with the stories of Winnie-the-Pooh, and perhaps your parents, and grandparents as well since the character is closing in on 100 years old. On Monday night, Illinois State University’s annual Lois Lenski Children’s Literature Lecture will focus on the stories of this beloved character, titled “The First Hundred Years of Winnie-the-Pooh.”
An English instructor from Eastern Illinois University is a Winnie-the-Pooh scholar, and he will be the one delivering the lecture. He joined us on The 21st to talk about the character's history and adaptations.
