Virtual Illustrated Lecture Series - Golden Legacy: The Story of the Golden Books

Golden Books revolutionized 20th-century publishing by creating high-quality children's books that nearly every American family could afford. In this richly illustrated presentation, renowned children's book scholar Leonard S. Marcus tells the story of the upstart visionaries who brought together top-flight authors and artists, state-of-the-art printing technology, and savvy marketing to make Golden Books one of America's most trusted and treasured brands.

Leonard S. Marcus is an internationally acclaimed historian whose pathfinding writings and exhibitions have earned him acclaim as one of the world’s preeminent authorities on children’s books and the people who create them.

The exhibitions and programs of the NIU Art Museum are sponsored in part by the Illinois Arts Council Agency, the Friends of the NIU Art Museum, the NIU Arts and Culture Fee; and the College of Visual and Performing Arts’ Season Presenting Sponsor Shaw Media. Additional funding for the programs related to our fall 2022 shows came from the Barbara Cole Peters Fund for the NIU Art Museum; Friends of the University Libraries, Friends of the DeKalb and Sycamore Public Libraries; NIU Gender and Sexuality Resource Center; and the NIU College of Education.
