What Are You Reading? -Children's Book Edition on Thursday's Access Utah

Feb 9, 2017

From time to time we gather as a UPR community to compile a book list. On the next Access Utah we’re going to concentrate on Children’s Books. What are you reading to your kids? What are your children reading? What’s your favorite children’s book of all time? How about a new title or something you’ve just discovered that you’d like to share with us?

In addition to you, we’ll be talking with Provo Library director, Gene Nelson; and University of Utah Associate Professor of Educational Psychology Lauren Liang. They, along with Utah author Ally Condie, will headline an event presented by the Salt Lake Tribune and The King’s English Bookshop, celebrating the Newbery Medal and great children’s literature. Gene Nelson is a Newbery committee member and Lauren Liang is a Caldecott committee member. The event is November 21, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at The King’s English Bookshop in Salt Lake City.

We ask our guests to debate their favorite Newbery and Caldecott winners and to talk about what makes a children’s book great. And we’ll ask them to list some of their favorite titles.
