Ursula Dubosarsky: Agents of Choice

The Wheeler Centre

Event Date: 27 July 2020
Author / Presenters: Bec Kavanagh and Ursula Dubosarsky

We all want kids and teenagers to be good at reading. Ideally, we'd like to get as many kids as possible hooked on books for life. To do that, librarians need to be able to offer young people reading choices and variety; the opportunity to select their own books, explore their own interests and find their own reading groove. 

At this professional development conversation for secondary-school library staff, Australia’s 2020-21 Children’s Laureate Ursula Dubosarsky will talk through questions of access and agency. What are the logistical, cultural and funding challenges librarians face in terms of what they can offer young readers? How has COVID-19 changed the landscape? Can librarians find creative ways around these problems? And what’s the role of parents and publishers here? Join Dubosarsky for this live-streamed Q&A, hosted by Bec Kavanagh. 

Presented in partnership with the Australian Children’s Laureate Foundation.
