2017 marks the 200th anniversary since Jane Austen's death. The English Association Children's Literature SIG and the Cambridge Research and Teaching Centre for Children's Literature invite practitioners and teacher trainees to a day event focused on introducing Jane Austen to children. The day will feature the renowned author Marcia Williams whose book Lizzy Bennet's Diary makes Austen's novel exciting and accessible for young readers. Listen to Marcia talk about her book, participate in her workshop on diary-writing, learn about adaptations of classics for young audiences, and hear teachers share their experience of using Jane Austen in the classroom. Get inspired, organise a Jane Austen project in your school and win a visit from Marcia Williams or book prizes.

Lunch and refreshments are included.
