Are you a very smart Brooklyn parent who would like some intellectual stimulation that you can justify with reference to parenting or something? Or just a smart person who is willing to be convinced of the philosophical value of books for tiny children? Join me for this 90 minute Olio where I look at children’s books with reference to Freudian and Lacanian psychoanalysis, and Harold Bloom’s Poetics of Influence.
**Note: Kids are welcome to attend the class for free with their parent and food and drinks from Berg'n vendors are welcomed to be brought in during class.
