Morris Gleitzman | Dunedin Writers & Readers Festival
12 May 2019 3:00pm — 4:00pm
Australian Children’s Laureate Morris Gleitzman says: “Young people need stories more than ever. Stories to delight, stories to beguile, stories to inspire, stories to move deeply.” He believes stories help our young people to develop empathy, insight and resilience: “I like to think of them as a bit like vitamins.” He’s been producing those vitamins for over 30 years now and has written over 40 books (for 8–12 year olds). Don’t miss this chance to hear one of the world’s most articulate and heart-huge children’s authors in conversation with Barbara Larson.
