Bookexpo 2017 Panel Truth is More Painted Than Fiction

140 views

Published on

At Bookexpo 2017, at a panel titled Truth Is More Painted Than Fiction: Graphic Nonfiction for Young Readers, panelists will explore the topic of graphic nonfiction for young readers.

Picture books, comics, and other highly illustrated nonfiction books are a growing phenomenon in children's and YA (young adult) publishing. For example, the graphic memoir March, depicting the civil rights movement through the eyes of John Lewis, became a #1 New York Times bestseller and won the National Book Award.

Panelists will discuss questions such as: What makes these works more than simply "easier books"? What is uniquely valuable about learning with images? What is visual literacy? What are readers looking for? What works? What doesn’t? Will schools embrace these formats? How do we market and promote visual nonfiction?

Panelists include Rocco Staino of School Library Journal; author and illustrator Roxie Munro; Christopher Llloyd, Publisher, What on Earth Publishing, and Leigh Walton of Top Shelf Productions. Moderated and organized by Susannah Greenberg, Public Relations. Panel date: June 2, 2017 at Bookexpo in New York, NY.
