‘Alice is a Boy’ talk with Professor Kiera Vaclavik
19.30, 20.30, 21.30 The Magic Common Room

As this talk will reveal, the queer afterlife of the Alice books is a compelling story which has yet to be fully told. Here we will explore questions concerning identity and gender fluidity within the original text and then show how these elements have been picked up in a selection of subsequent adaptations, reworkings and performances.

Grandad’s Pride & Flag Making with Harry Woodgate
20.00-21.00 Small Worlds (with reading at 20.30)

Join award winning author and illustrator Harry Woodgate on the giant bed in the patchwork land of Small Worlds. Listen to Grandad’s Pride and create your own mini pride flag. Harry writes and illustrates diverse, inclusive stories that inspire young readers to be creative, kind and proud of what makes them unique. Grandad’s Camper, the debut title in the series, won Waterstones Children’s Book Prize Best Illustrated Book in 2022 as well as a Stonewall Book Award Honor from the American Library Association and the Children’s Illustrated Book of the Year at the British Book Awards in 2023. In partnership with Andersen Press.
