In their recent history of Canadian children’s illustrated books, Gail Edwards and Judith Saltman observe that “the children’s literature of a nation is a microcosm of that country’s literary and sociocultural values, beliefs, themes, and images, including those of geography, history, and identity.” This lecture explores the importance of regional Atlantic Canadian children’s literature and the development of Sea Stacks, an authoritative web-based resource featuring information on and about Atlantic Canadian books, authors and illustrators for children and youth.  Sea Stacks includes comprehensive annotated bibliographies of primary texts, author and illustrator profiles, videotaped interviews, analysis, and criticism.  This presentation illustrates the use of Sea Stacks for research and concludes with a discussion of the relevance of Ian McKay’s provocative 1994 text The Quest for the Folk: Antimodernism and Cultural Selection in Twentieth-Century Nova Scotia to an analysis of contemporary Nova Scotian picture books.  This talk is hosted by the iSchool at the University of British Columbia.
