WASLA Conference Perth: "In Your Dreams"

I look forward to meeting members and friends of the West Australian School Librarians' Association. This session will showcase Flight as an example of the picture book genre, using it to explore visual and written literacy. I will talk about my inspiration for the story, and the process of collaboration with internationally renowned illustrator, Armin Greder. As well, the session will show how this picture book could be used to encourage students to explore the broader theme of refugee stories, using a number of historical stories in my history, Australians All.
