Too often, children’s voices are not heard when it comes to ‘adult conferences’ that debate what appeals to a young audience. This panel explores literature for children by children themselves, aged eight to twelve years old. The panel consists of teacher-nominated, avid young readers who are part of a book club, Gathering Readers. These Singapore-based children will talk about books that moved and engaged their sensibilities, providing helpful tips and pointers about what moves them to pick up a book.
