Invisible storytellers: Cinderella, Pinocchio and the remarkable role of translators in the history of British children’s literature

When we see a child enjoy the stories of Cinderella and Pinocchio, or engrossed in an Asterix album, it is easy to forget the role of a translator in producing English versions of these tales. Gillian Lathey, Senior Honorary Research Fellow at the University of Roehampton London, will introduce some of these invisible storytellers and pay homage to their neglected craft.

This is part of a series of free talks to accompany the exhibition From Rags to Witches: The grim tale of children’s stories. For exhibition and event details please visit theĀ Manuscripts and Special Collections website.
