Nancy Book Honour Lecture 2020 : Reading our Kids

Primary tabs

Presented by the ALIA Childrens and Youth Services Group

The Nancy Booker Honour Lecture was instituted by the NSW Group of the Children's and Youth Services as a forum for children's and youth librarians and others concerned with the promotion of high quality children's literature and professional development in the field of children's and youth librarianship. The inaugural lecture was delivered by Nancy Booker herself at the Library Association of Australia Children's Libraries Section (NSW Group) One-day conference in 1986.

Please join us and your colleagues around Australia for a free webinar event, as we reflect on the ways that children's literature can inspire good mental health, a topic very redolent of current times.
