Struwwelpeter Gallery Talk a Big Hit

Bettina Brandt, lecturer in the Department of Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures, and 7-year-old Vera Mendum-Purdy delighted an audience with their readings from "Struwwelpeter," the popular 19th-century children’s tale by Heinrich Hoffmann, which has delighted children on both sides of the Atlantic since its first publication in 1845. The reading was in conjunction with the exhibition “Highlights
from the Allison-Shelley Collection of German Literature in English Translation,” on display in The Special Collections Library, 104 Paterno Library, and extended to February 11.
