Flynn on "The Bat Poet"

Richard Flynn gave a lecture on The Bat-Poet--Randall Jarrell's much loved children's book--to a full house in SDSU Library's Leon Williams Room on April 22, 2010. The title of his talk was "Randall Jarrell’s The Bat-Poet: Poets, Children and Readers in an Age of Prose." Lively discussion ensued after Dr. Flynn delivered his remarks. A Professor at Georgia Southern University, Flynn is the author of Randall Jarrell and the Lost World of Childhood (U of Georgia P, 1990), former editor of the Children's Literature Association Quarterly, and current editor of the forthcoming Critical Edition of L. Frank Baum's The Wizard of Oz.
