Literacy Library Presents...
What are they?
Hosted by the CLPE, the Literacy Library Presents series connects educators and teachers to leading children's authors and illustrators. Each Literacy Library Presents session gives attendees the chance to meet authors and illustrators and to discover their work first hand, while also presenting an opportunity to browse the CLPE's purpose built Literacy Library - home to over 23,000 carefully selected children's books and books on primary pedagogy.
Its dedicated fiction, non-fiction and poetry collections from EYFS to KS2 make it the perfect venue to celebrate all things related to the world of Children's Literature and Primary Literacy.
