What does Charlotte’s Web mean to you? In the latest edition of THNKR’s BOOKD series, readers and writers talked about E.B. White‘s famous kid’s book.

The group included The Story of Charlotte’s Web author Michael Sims, CafeMom Studios host Joann Augello , seventh grade poet Kioni Marshall, New York University professor Robert Landy, teacher Monica Edginer and Unicorn Chronicles series author Bruce Coville.

The video is embedded above. Here’s more about this literary web series: “BOOKD is a series brought to you by THNKR that explores game-changing books through the insights and opinions of engaging personalities. Created and produced by @radical.media, THNKR gives you extraordinary access to the people, stories, places and thinkin that will change your mind.”

Charlotte’s Web, a Newbery Honor title, was published back in 1952. In honor of the book’s sixtieth anniversary, HarperCollins Children’s Books released a special edition featuring a foreword written by The Tale of Despereaux author Kate DiCamillo.

At the moment, The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art is hosting a special exhibit called, “Some Pig! Some Art!: Selected Drawings by Garth Williams for Charlotte’s Web.” This art show will be on view until April 22, 2013.
