Once Upon A School - a truly inspiring talk about writing with kids in your community. If we all really listen, it’s a talk that could actually change the world.
Dave Eggers, author of one of my favourite books ever, A HEARTBREAKING WORK OF STAGGERING GENIUS, talks about his incredible work offering one-to-one tutoring to kids in his neighbourhood. Pirate & superhero shops to lure them in and take away the stigma of needing extra help, published books of the kids’ work, writers giving up their time to foster the children’s imagination and so much more. I hope one day to set up something like this - it really is wonderful.
