“You cannot write for children. They're much too complicated.
You can only write books that are of interest to them. ”

Storytelling has been used to share experiences and life lessons since the beginning of time. Children’s literature in its many forms has powerfully affected generation after generation, shaping not only how we act as children but the adults we become.
Ø If children’s books influence the way we live as adults, do today’s authors carry a social responsibility?
Ø Has the digital age changed the way children read and how we read with our children?
Ø What should we be reading now?
The answers to these questions will be explored in an enlightened and dynamic conversation with writer Laurel Snyder, illustrator R. Gregory Christi and Paideia School Librarian Natalie Bernstein. The discussion will be moderated by Timothy Frilingos, Director of Exhibitions at the Breman Museum.
Entrance to this event is included in regular museumadmission and seating will be first-come, first-served.
Tickets will be available at the door on the day of the event.
The Breman Museum would like to extend a special thanks to their partners, The Society of Children's Book Writers & Illustrators - Southern Breeze Region, The PJ Library, and The Georgia Center for the Book.
