Illustrated Virtual Lecture Series – Golden Legacy: The Story of Golden Books

Golden Books revolutionized 20th century publishing by creating high-quality children’s books that almost every American family could afford. In this lavishly illustrated presentation, renowned children’s book scholar Leonard S. Marcus tells the story of the upstart visionaries who brought together leading authors and artists, cutting-edge printing technology and savvy marketing to make Golden Books one of America’s most trusted and beloved brands.

Leonard S. Marcus is an internationally renowned historian whose pioneering writings and exhibitions have earned him recognition as one of the world’s leading authorities on children’s books and the people who create them.

NIU Art Museum exhibits and programs are sponsored in part by the Illinois Arts Council Agency, Friends of the NIU Art Museum, NIU Arts and Culture Fee; and Shaw Media, presenting sponsor of the College of Visual and Performing Arts season.
