Symposium for Jewish Children’s Literature: Novelists and Publishing Professionals
March 15 - 18, 2019
Beyond the Holocaust & Holidays: Who Are We & What Are We Writing?
Designed for established and emerging Jewish novelists and publishing professionals, as we explore writing for and about Jewish children and young adults.
What stories do today’s children need from Jewish book creators and about Jewish people? What stories speak to our varied experiences? And how can we diversify the existing body of Jewish children’s literature?
Join Katherine Locke, Adam Gidwitz, Rena Rossner, Susan Kusel, Rebecca Kuss, Jocelyn Davies, Shirley Idelson and Linda Epstein as we explore where Jewish novelists fit in the business of writing for children and teens.
