Narnia Must Fall: people of colour in children’s literature

Narnia Must Fall: people of colour in children’s literature

The lack of BME characters and authors in children’s literature has been recently highlighted by research from the Centre for Literacy in Primary Education and from Book Trust. This noted lack raises questions such as:

  • How does this lack of BME characters and authors in children’s literature affect children?
  • What can we do about it?
  • What support can BME writers access?
  • What barriers still need to be removed?

This workshop, led by Royal Literary Fund Fellow Leila Rasheed,  will include highlights from a report on Megaphone: an Arts Council England funded project to support BME children’s authors,which she ran until 2016 and consider the above questoins and more.
