Interviews With Children's Book People Available On-line

A number of interviews with authors and illustrators conducted by Billie Levy for West Hartford cable television have been made available on-line through the Thomas Dodd Research Center at the University of Connecticut.

Billie Levy is a big, big name in children's literature in Connecticut. She is a former children's librarian and a serious collector of children's books. She is one of the collectors who donated items from personal collections to help get the Northeast Children's Literature Collection started. In Billie's case we're talking a donation of 8,000 items.

She continues to collect, and I often see her at children's literature events at UConn.
