Aesthetic and Cultural Transition
Tue 15 Aug 4:30pm - 5:30pm
Bosco Theatre (George Street)
Picture Books Across Borders
The UK picture book market is thriving; children across the world enjoy what could be described as a British visual aesthetic. In comparison, very few picture books from other countries are translated and published here. Are we missing out? Join our panel, including co-founder of Tiny Owl publishing Delaram Ghanimifard, Iranian illustrator Ehsan Abdollahi, translator Azita Rassi and picture book author Pippa Goodhart for an absorbing discussion. Do children who experience picture books from other countries develop a better, broader appreciation of other cultures? Chaired by Daniel Hahn.
