Sunday 5th May
A discussion with acclaimed Australian authors Jackie French AM and Morris Gleitzman on how, through literature, a difficult subject such as the Holocaust can be introduced to young readers.
How does one take a sensitive subject and gently introduce this to younger readers without causing them trauma?
French and Gleitzman will discuss their respective books written for young readers with the Holocaust as their subjects. They will also delve into how their interactions with Holocaust survivors have immensely influenced their lives and their writing.
This event is presented as part of the 2019 Sydney Writers’ Festival.
