The Children's Folklore Review has recently published its latest issue (Vol. 38), a special collection of essays honoring the distinguished career and scholarship of Dr. Simon J. Bronner. The essays, penned by his colleagues and students, past and present, are illustrative of the tremendous influence his scholarship continues to have in shaping the theoretical orientations and methodology within the study of children’s folklore. Issues will be available for purchase at the 2017 Annual Meeting.
