As part of Homerton's 250th Anniversary year, join Professor Morag Styles to learn more about the fascinating world of contemporary picture books and children's responses to them. You will also have the opportunity to view Homerton's picturebook exhibition before and after the event, with items from 18th - 20th Centuries.
Please note: this event is not intended for young children.

Morag Styles retired in 2014 as Professor of Children’s Poetry at the Faculty of Education, Cambridge, and is an Emeritus Fellow of Homerton College. She is the author of numerous books and articles including, Children Reading Pictures: Interpreting Visual Texts with Evelyn Arizpe (2016) and Children’s Picturebooks: The Art of Visual Storytelling with Martin Salisbury (2012) which won UKLA Academic Book of the Year. She has curated an exhibition for the Fitzwilliam Museum: Picture This! Picturebook Art at the Millennium (2000). She is currently writing a childhood memoir set in Scotland and India.

In 2018 we celebrate the 250th anniversary of Homerton College. A College with a rich and interesting history, and a mission – to serve the needs of society through education – that is as vitally important today as it was in 1768.www.homerton250.org/
