The Great Gender Debate
Fri 18 Aug 7:30pm - 9:00pm
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.
