'Lindsey Wilson Conversations' Episode 2: 'Where the Wild Things Are'

Posted on Thursday, October 22, 2009 [10:30 PM]

Maurice Sendak's children's classic Where the Wild Things Are is the subject of the second installment of Lindsey Wilson Conversations.
Lindsey Wilson College Assistant Professor of Recreation, Tourism, and Sports Management Tricia Day discusses the 1963 children's book, which is about 9-year-old boy Max who is sent to his room for "making mischief."
Max's room turns into a jungle then leads him to the land of the Wild Things, where he becomes the ruler before returning home because he is lonely.
The book was recently turned into a movie by Spike Jonze, and it was the No. 1 grossing U.S. film for the weekend of Oct. 16-18.
Day requires students in her "Introduction to Recreation and Leisure" class read the book because of the succinct way Sendak defines play through the eyes of a 9-year-old child.
To learn more about the book and why it's remained a classic, watch the embedded episode of Lindsey Wilson Conversations.
A weekly Internet show, Lindsey Wilson Conversations features a member of the LWC community discussing a topic of interest to him or her while enjoy a beverage of his or her choice.
