Hi! My name is Evie, and I have just graduated in English Language and Literature from the University of Oxford. I am happiest with a cup of tea and a good book, and I am passionate about children’s books.
My final year dissertation focused on contemporary, British picture books written for children. My argument was that adults can and should read picture books, pointing out the form’s literary value and the intimate relationship between the adultness of the author and the childishness of the implied reader.
I am hoping to create a space where I can share my love for children’s literature with others in ‘Not Now, Adulthood.’
