Unraveling the Complexities of Friendship

  • Harbor Springs History Museum 349 E. Main Street Harbor Springs (map)

Presenters:  Makiia Lucier, Katherine Marsh, Kat Yeh
Moderator:  Lisa Blanchard

Some of the most memorable characters in all of literature are the main characters' best friends. Piglet to Pooh. Ron and Hermione to Harry. Sam to Frodo. These sidekicks are so essential to furthering the plot, helping the main characters out of sticky situations and, most importantly, revealing facets of their friends that would never be revealed to readers otherwise. In order to do so, these friendships are required to weather some ups and downs, harsh truths and well-meaning lies, the joys of success and the pains of failure, the bonds of togetherness and the loneliness of independence. Writing for an audience for whom friendship is messy and wonderful and always changing, these authors craft their work with sensitivity and understanding.
