Wonder Woman Reimagined for Children

Wonder Woman

It’s been ten years since the publication of our graduate school faculty member Nina Jaffe’s reimagining of DC Comics’ Wonder Woman. This HarperCollins Festival Readers series, wonderfully illustrated by Ben Caldwell, introduces the superheroine to younger readers.

To mark this anniversary, we are displaying the highly-praised series of books in the library. We also have ancillary material to provide a deeper context for the import of this interpretation in popular culture and children’s literature.Wonder Woman2

The display includes:

 

  • Chris Roberson’s blog post, “A Wonder Woman to Believe In”
  • Street Scenes article on Bank Street values in Nina’s reshaping of the icon
  • “Girl, You’re a Wonder Woman Now,” an address by Dr. Joseph Campbell for the Children’s Literature Association

Stop by the reference area to take a look at the books!
