Dr. Sara Lindey, assistant professor of English at Saint Vincent College, published an article, “Sympathy and Science: Representing Girls in Abolitionist Children’s Literature” in The Journal of the Midwest Modern Language Association.

“Antislavery children’s literature provides a forum for women writers to speak to girls of their era in children’s literature, imagining their younger sisters’ and daughters’ roles and responsibilities,” Dr. Lindey commented. “With titles that indicate an imagined girls’ readership, John P. Jewett’s series of antislavery toy books provide a rich archive to examine how women writers imagined the rising generation of girls.”
