Literacy Library Presents: Jump Up A Story of Carnival with Ken Wilson-Max
Join us online for a special Literary Library Presents event celebrating the launch of Jump Up! A Story of Carnival, written and illustrated by award-winning author Ken Wilson-Max and published by the George Padmore Institute. Sarah Garrod (GPI) will also participate.
Jump Up! is the second book in the GPI’s new series of black history picturebooks, Reaching New Generations, and tells the story of Cecille, a young black girl living in the Caribbean, and how her community develops their very own Carnival, based on their long-remembered African traditions. The story draws on the history of the festival and highlights one of the many contributions that Britain’s Caribbean population has made to our everyday cultural life.
The event will be led by CLPE’s Primary Advisory Teacher Darren Matthews
Attendees will need to pay £3.50 P&P fee to receive this offer of two free books. Details of how to redeem this offer will be sent to all attendees of this event.
Registration will be via Zoom. Please follow the instructions in your confirmation email and ensure that you register well in advance of the start of the event.
