  • Up Close: December 1, 2014

    by TJC Staff

    This week on Up Close, how the narratives of childhood can affect the rest of our lives.

    First, when it comes to how children play, and where they play, cultural differences can have a tremendous impact. Author Susan G. Solomon discusses the way in which different kinds of playgrounds impart different values to the children who play on them. Her new book is The Science of Play: How to Build Playgrounds That Enhance Children’s Development.

    Then, as we go through childhood and adolescence, popular music can have a tremendous effect on our development. That was especially true for kids growing up during the height of The Beatles’ popularity, and in turn, and as those kids grew up, they impacted the world in ways influenced by the music, argues Candy Leonard. She is author of Beatleness: How The Beatles and Their Fans Remade the World.

    Finally, what do you do when you find out your father distributed perhaps the most famous porn film of all time? If you’re Kristin Battista-Frazee, you write a book about it. She discusses that book, The Pornographer’s Daughter: A Memoir of Childhood, My Dad, and Deep Throat.
