Moderator: Myra Garces-Bacsal
This special talk is delivered by Lucia Obi from the International Youth Library, whose specialists work to preserve cultural diversity in the world's children's books. Their projects include the annual White Ravens Catalogue, though until recently, only East Asian literature have been represented. Lucia explores the challenges and opportunities of incorporating other Asian selections, and what it means to make Southeast Asian children's literature globally visible.
Lucia Obi's appearance is supported by the Goethe-Institut Singapore.
