Dr. Lynn Kirkland and Dr. Deborah Strevy are on the faculty of the School of Education at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Both have taught children’s literature as well as many courses related to the literacy development of young children. Their brief lecture will focus on the very important role parents play in the literacy development of their children and techniques they may use when reading and working with their children and books. The focus of the remarks will be the award winning literature of Ashley Bryan, which will be on display in the Birmingham Public Library 4th Floor Gallery from April 11-May 20.
