Children’s Literature Summer School
Friday, 8 June – Saturday, 9 June 2018
The children’s literature summer school gives you the chance to examine key aspects of children’s literature, to deepen your knowledge, and enhance your appreciation of texts for young readers.
The summer school is taught through lectures, which open up key areas for investigation, and workshops which give participants the opportunity to examine and discuss specific texts and to test a variety of approaches to children’s books. Staff will guide you through critical material and show you how familiar books can still surprise and delight us.
The programme also includes a special tour of Trinity’s old library, and a hands-on session with the Pollard Collection of Children’s Literature – a vast collection of over 10,000 children’s books.
The summer school will be of special interest to teachers, students, educationalists and children’s literature enthusiasts.
