DePaul’s University’s Institute for Nature and Culture is hosting the launch event for BEI Emeritus Fellow Liam Heneghan book: Beasts at Bedtime: Revealing the Environmental Wisdom in Children’s Literature (University of Chicago Press, 2018).

Within the entertaining pages of many children’s books lie profound teachings about the natural world that can help children develop an educated and engaged appreciation of the dynamic environment they inhabit. In Beasts at Bedtime, scientist (and father) Heneghan examines the environmental underpinnings of children’s stories

Copies of the book will be available at the reception.
