GPB Education's New Resource for Children's Literature

Georgia Public Broadcasting and the Atlanta Public Library System teamed up to bring the work of Ashley Bryan, beloved children's author and illustrator, to the people of Georgia. Organized by the Atlanta Public Library system, the Ashley Bryan Children's Literature Conference highlighted the tremendous contributions Bryan made to the art world and children's literature.

GPB Education has created a six-part program from the Ashley Bryan Children's Literature Conference that captures the renowned artist/illustrator and storyteller. It provides a unique opportunity for viewers to gain insight regarding the importance of literacy and the role it played in Bryan's life.
