Event Description

Image from movable book "Red Riding Hood"

Portrayed as big, bad and ravenous, the wolf in fairy tales is most often the villain, a beast who tricks and then devours both children and adults before meeting a violent end. A Penn State University Libraries exhibition, “What Big Eyes You Have! Looking at the Wolf in Fairy Tales,” running until August 26, 2018, in Penn State University Libraries’ Eberly Family Special Collections Library, takes a close look at historical depictions of the wolf in well-known and lesser-known fairy tales, drawing from several sources among Special Collections Library materials.
