The Children’s Book Circle would love you to join us at our annual fiction panel event, discussing the importance of BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) representation in Children’s fiction.
According to BookTrust, less than 2% of authors and illustrators being published in the UK are British people of Colour. Knights Of have stated that less than 4% of the publishing workforce in the UK is non-white and the CLPE Reflecting Realities report showed that 1% of books in 2017 had a BAME protagonist.
This panel will be discussing how BAME representation is portrayed, featured and handled within Children’s literature.
We're so happy to announce our panelists for the event-
- Catherine Johnson
- Muhammad Khan
- Jasbinder Bilan
- With Sian Pratley as our chair
