Event Details

Join us for a day of discussion and debate for all library staff across the Southeast region. Discussion will focus on the Carnegie & Kate Greenaway regional shortlisted titles, with our guest speakers adding another dimension.


This training day is aimed at all staff who would like to increase their knowledge and understanding of the best in current children's literature. They will gain skills in recognising the qualities that make good writing and illustration in children's books, increase their confidence in talking about literature and network with colleagues from across the South East region. They will also have the opportunity to vote for the South East region's nominations for the Carnegie and Kate Greenaway awards for 2014.
