Who this event is for

  • Everyone


Harcourt Hill Campus


What was the first book that made you cry, laugh or stop and think? Which children’s author monopolised your attention and your bookshelf?

Join top writers, including Beverley Naidoo and Daniel Hahn, to look at how children’s writing evokes emotion - and how children’s authors write with their readers in mind. With panelists such as Catherine Johnson and S.F. Said, we'll also consider how children’s literature has changed, and how children’s authors today are attracting a new generation of book lovers.
