Author Talk: Jo Holz

Tue, April 3, 2018 2:00 P.M.
Philadelphia City Institute

Cost: FREE

Author Jo Holz will present her book Kids' TV Grows Up: The Path from Howdy Doody to SpongeBob and sign copies of the book, which will be available for purchase. Dr. Holz, former head of research for Sesame Workshop, will discuss the evolution of children’s television programming as a reflection of how our country, our society, and our culture have changed, and as a reflection of changes in what adults have thought about children.

This program is co-sponsored by Friends in the City (FitC) and the Philadelphia City Institute Library. It will be held in the meeting room on the library’s lower level and we regret there is no elevator.
