Event description
Celebrating the launch of the Breaking New Ground catalogue, 4 well-known children's writers of colour share their life experiences.

About this Event

Teachers, librarians and parents all know how important it is for young readers to access great books that inspire and enthral. But children’s books also need to reflect the diversity of our world and our nation, our communities and families.

Breaking New Ground is an invaluable new resource which champions and celebrates over 100 British children’s writers and illustrators of colour. Through this beautifully designed catalogue, anyone who buys, borrows, publishes or programmes books and authors for children can explore and access the enormous diversity of literary talent active in Britain today.

Speakers include Atinuke, creator of Anna Hibiscus; Jamila Gavin, author of Coram Boy; Pooja Puri, author of The Jungle.

This event is part of a national touring showcase with national partners Speaking Volumes, Pop Up Projects and BookTrust. Funded by Arts Council England.

The Cardiff event is brought to you in partnership by Literature Wales and g39
