The collection is primarily composed of information relating to the publication of Jen Bryant’s picture books and novels. The greatest amount of content is related to books written between 2004 and 2011, but the collection spans from the early days of Bryant’s writing career in 1991 to work on her most recently published book, with additional donations anticipated at the author’s convenience.

Materials relating to Bryant’s professional activities and personal life are also available. These include records of events she attended, awards and honors she received, publishers’ catalogues, and personal correspondence.
