Jackie Morris & Shaun Tan

Saturday 13th March 2:00pm

This event will feature two fantastic recent recipients of the Kate Greenaway medal for illustration: Jackie Morris (the winner in 2019 for the The Lost Words, a collaborative project with author Robert MacFarlane) and Shaun Tan (the 2020 winner for Tales from the Inner City, a remarkable collection of illustrated short fiction). Both illustrators have been fascinated with the relationship between humanity and the animal kingdom, throughout their careers. Jackie and Shaun will discuss their artistic practices and techniques, the natural world and their prize-winning illustrations with Alison Brumwell, current Chair of the Youth Libraries Group and Chair of the judging panel for the Kate Greenaway Medal.

Suitable for ages 10+

Jackie Morris lives in Wales where she writes and paints. She has two children, a small pack of dogs and a small pride of cats. Jackie exhibits her paintings in galleries nationwide.

Jackie devised the idea and illustrated the Kate Greenaway Medal winning and British Book Award winner, The Lost Words.
