The Narrelle Oliver lecture was established in 2015 to raise the profile and value of children’s literature, to stimulate discussion and disseminate the results of current research on children’s literature.
In 2017 the lecture changed its name from the Book Links lecture in Children’s Literature to the Narelle Oliver Lecture in the memory of Narelle Oliver, her impact on Children’s Literature within Queensland as well as a being a founding member of Book Links.
We are pleased to announce that guest speaker for the 2018 Narelle Oliver Lecture will be Australian Children’s Laureate Morris Gleitzman.
More details will follow soon.
