Members of the child_lit listserv began a discussion of Experts: Junk Culture is Killing Childhood that petered out pretty quickly. I wonder if children's publishing contributes in any way to a so-called "junk culture." And one of the other posters questioned the definition of "junk culture." Just what is it?
After giving the matter a few moments of thought, I've decided that junk culture is probably anything I don't like.
