London Book Fair 2012 – The Panels.

I attended London Book Fair again this year on Monday and Tuesday and went to 6 panels hosted by Booktrust. I took lots of notes at them and thought I would share them on my blog, whenever I tweeted anything from one of the panels someone responded saying they wished they were there too. The notes are all pretty long (each session was an hour long) so I’ve put each lot on a different page, you may wish to get a cuppa before reading any of them!

The panels I went to were:

The World into Words: Why Reading Non-Fiction is Vital for Children.

Growing up too soon: Fiction that asks if teenagers are ready for the adult world.

Discover Stories: Getting Children Reading and Writing.

Waterstone’s Children’s Laureate Promotion with Julia Donaldson.

Express yourself: Bali Rai and a group of Young Londoners.

What’s the story? Listening to Deaf and Disabled Children.

The panels were all really interesting and gave me lots of things to come away and think about, and most of them provided me with a book or two to add to my wishlist!
