Why do we need non-fiction picturebooks when we can find out any facts we want from the internet? We need them because they curate information, check its veracity and present it in ways which are visually exciting. Come along to this Non-Fiction Picturebook Seminar, the third annual seminar of the Waikato Picturebook Research Unit, and hear from librarians, researchers, authors, illustrators and publishers about writing, reading, lending and analysing non-fiction picturebooks.
Registration cost is $60 (GST incl) includes morning tea, lunch and twelve fascinating speakers.
