NY Public Library Adapts Classics for Instagram
They’re starting a new chapter. Hoping to entice younger readers, the New York Public Library has launched what it calls “Insta Novels”: Using the platform’s Stories feature, the famed institution is releasing full-length, animated digital versions of classic literary works over the next several months. The series, which cost the library under $10,000, kicked off yesterday with the first 80 pages of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and will continue with works by Franz Kafka and Charlotte Perkins Gilman. The second installment of Alice’s adventures is expected today.
