Welcome to the DRIN book club to discuss diverse children’s literature! In each meeting there will be 2-3 book introductions followed by discussion and exchange of thoughts and ideas. Everyone is welcome to the book club: parents, teachers, kindergarten teachers, librarians as well as everyone else working with or using children’s books.
We shall announce the books of each meeting beforehand so everyone can have a look at them if they wish to. However, reading the books is not a precondition for joining – you can just join us in search for new interesting book tips! We also welcome book tips from all the participants - feel free to bring your own book to discuss.
The book club is international and the language is English. The books to be discussed can be in any language.
The first book club:
- with the author Chantal-Fleur Sandjon and Emmi Jäkkö from the Finnish Reading Center.
- Books: Andrea Karimé: "King kommt noch" and "Satulahja". The latter is a storybook that is translated in several languages and given out to families in the Finnish Child Health Centers to promote reading in the families.
The book clubs will be hosted by Martha Wohlleber
who has studied diversity in children’s literature within a German context.
We use Zoom. Please register here:
