Book Talk: 'Are the Kids All Right? Representations of LGBTQ Characters in Children's and YA Literat

Panel discussion of Epstein’s new book which considers the representations of LGBTQ characters in children's and young adult literature.


Guests from Alliance of Radical Booksellers member Letterbox Library will be introducing B. J. Epstein's latest book which offers the first ever overview of English language children's literature starring LGBTQ characters. The panel will consider:

*whether LGBTQ children's books are inevitably marketed and shelved as 'issues' book;

*what sort of LGBTQ representations have existed in children's literature to date (gay penguins, anyone?);

*how LGBTQ children's books might be used in schools;

*how do we want to change the landscape of LGBTQ images in children's books?;

*where should we all- publishers/authors, booksellers- be going from here?

Joining B.J. in the discussion will be Mark Jennett, a consultant and trainer specialising in diversity, who has worked with both the NUT and on the No Outsiders Project on addressing gender stereotypes and advancing sexuality equality in schools.

This talk will be followed by the announcement of the shortlist for the ARB's Little Rebels Award for Radical Children's Fiction; for further info go to: www.littlerebelsaward.wordpress.com
