Speakers announced

Exciting news as we now have two confirmed plenary speakers: Professor Roni Natov, author of The Poetics of Childhood and more recently a number of articles on environmental themes in children’s literature, and illustrator Jim Kay, who is responsible for those amazing illustrations in A Monster Calls.

We also have confirmation from Trinity College’s very own Professor Amanda Piesse that she will be speaking at the conference. Professor Piesse currently co-ordinates the M. Phil in Children’s Literature with Dr Padraic Whyte. She has published widely in the area of children’s literature and is committed to the research of landscapes in children’s literature.
