What kinds of books have giants in them?  How do they fit them in?  Find out at the exhibition on the first floor of the English Faculty. There’s also a display board and mystery object in the English Faculty Library.  The exhibition is curated by Dr Amy Morris and includes illustrated books from university and college libraries, and work by children’s poets from the USA and Australia. It is part of the 2018 Cambridge Festival of Ideas and links in with a talk by Dr Morris for families, ‘Tall Tales: Giants in Literature’ on Saturday 20 October at 12.30pm in the Drama Studio, and a children’s art and poetry workshop ‘Writing Big, Making Giants.’
