  • About

    This session brings together three children’s writers for a conversation about how we help children navigate sophisticated ideas. Davina Bell’s The Underwater Fancy-Dress Parade is a tender tale about an anxious boy. Elin Kelsey’s You Are Stardust magically reconnects us to the natural world, and Jessica Walton is the author of Introducing Teddy, the charming story of a transgender teddy bear. Chair Jo Case. Elin Kelsey supported by Canada Council for the Arts
