The Fickling Lecture on Developments in Children’s Literature

The Fickling Lecture on Developments in Children’s Literature brings a major contemporary voice to Newcastle to reflect on children’s literature and culture.

The lecture forms part of Newcastle University’s popular free Insights public lecture series and is hosted by the Children’s Literature Unit, part of the School of English Literature, Language and Linguistics, with Seven Stories: The National Centre for Children’s Books. We would like to thank David Fickling Books for their continued support of this annual event.
