Join us for a special presentation from Ernie Bond, professor of children's literature and Chair of the Teacher Education Department at Salisbury University (Maryland USA).

We've snaffled Ernie on a flying visit to WA and he'll speak to us on the topic of "Visual Literacy and the Pleasures of Reading Children's Literature". His talk will explore trends in visual narrative both in the USA and internationally and will be of interest to writers, illustrators, teachers and literacy specialists, as well as all readers of illustrated fiction.


Dr. Bond has twice served as the USA jurist for the Hans Christian Anderson Award and is one of the founders of the Green Earth Book Awards. He is the author of Literature and the Young Adult Reader and is active in the Children's Book Guild, The USBBY, and IBBY.
