Join Kirsten Hausia (Culture Crate), Denise Chapman (Monash University), Emele Ugavule (Talanoa) and Torika Bolatagici (Community Reading Room) in conversation as they delve into the importance of access to diverse children’s literature; First Nations, bilingual and oral storytelling; matters of representation; and the power of books to challenge dominant discourse.

The speakers will discuss the various projects and multidisciplinary platforms they utilise to engage communities and promote inclusive narratives in children’s books.

This event forms part of a Community Reading Room three part series.
