About Diverse Voices: In conversation with Catherine Johnson and Patrice Lawrence

About In conversation with writers Catherine Johnson and Patrice Lawrence

Writers Catherine Johnson and Patrice Lawrence will talk about their work, and reflect on issues around children’s literature and race.

Chaired by Darren Chetty, UCL Institute of Education, this event closes the Diverse Voices? Curating a National History of Children’s Books symposium. Patrice and Catherine will also reflect on how Seven Stories can better represent Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic voices as part of a national story of children’s literature.

This event is jointly hosted by Newcastle University’s Institute for Social Renewal and Seven Stories: The National Centre for Children’s Books. A limited number of public spaces are also available for the full Diverse Voices? symposium. If you are interested in attending this, please contact rachel.pattinson@ncl.ac.uk.
