The Great Gender Debate

Girls, Books, Boys, Toys

Marketing toys to either girls or boys is big business, but what about books? Do authors writing for youngsters consciously create stories with a gender in mind? We've seen the rise of the 'strong girl' in fiction and books created for the allegedly elusive 'boy readers', but what is the reality? Join award-winning novelist of young adult fiction Kathryn Evans, American author of Two Boys Kissing, David Levithan, and fantasy writer Jonathan Stroud for a fascinating discussion. In association with the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.
