Books for Children Around the World: A Global Conversation

The Children's Literary Salon is a group of children's literature enthusiasts that gather monthly to talk about topics of importance in children's literature. This month they will be discussing children's books around the world and anyone who is interested in children's literature and in New York City is encouraged to come.
Hear a panel of international authors discuss the worldwide state of children’s literature and publishing.  Constance Vidor, Director of Library Services at Friends Seminary, will begin with an overview of the International Board on Books for the Young.  A panel discussion will follow between Sharon Elswit, the anthologist of The Jewish Story Finder and The East Asian Story Finder, and Israeli Pnina Moed Kass, the author of Real Time, translated into German & French, winner of the National Jewish Book Award and the Sydney Taylor. Rebecca Linde the Director of Sponsorship and Marketing of the New York International Children’s Film Festival, will end the afternoon with a peek into this year’s Film Festival.
This amazing program will take place on Saturday, May 5th at 2PM in the New York Public Library, located at 5th Avenue and 42nd Street, in the Berger Forum on the second floor.
