What we do

We empower readers and educators not just to love books but to ask what kind of worlds they show us.

We are passionate about literature. Picture books, chapter books, poetry, old books, new books, classics and popular books. We want literature to form the foundation for creating critical, empathetic readers who can enjoy healthy debates about climate change. We want to make sure that our research in English literature steps out of the academic library and to where it can make the most difference, reading groups, classrooms and sitting rooms.
