Big Book Seminar:
Professor Debby Thacker – Girls, Boys and Wild Things: Thinking about Gender in Children’s Picture Books
Over the course of the weekend, three top academics will be introducing some of their current work to a general audience, or those thinking of studying at university.
Debby, from the English Department at the University of Gloucestershire, will look at some classics, like Dogger and The Tiger Who Came to Tea, as well as more recent work by people like Anthony Browne and Aaron Becker, and how they can support or challenge our ideas of the different roles of men and women.
The Big Book Weekend is brought to the Goods Shed by the Yellow Lighted Book Shop and runs from Friday 3rd May through to Monday 6th May. The full programme is available here: https://www.yellow-lightedbookshop.co.uk/index.html
