Another fantastic black dog event

How do you get kids excited about the Humanities?

How do you engage kids with the humanities subjects? How do you show them that history can be exciting? How do you convince them that classic stories are worth reading?

Join the team at black dog books to hear three of our authors give their perspective on using different methods to engage children with the humanities.

Ananda Braxton-Smith is the author of The Death: The Horror of the Plague, part of the award-winning Drum series. The Death brings the 14th Century to life and the descriptions of the devastating effects that the plague had on all walks of life will shock and inform.

Judith A. Simpson has written a rollicking adventure tale The Princess of Pushkar: In the Shadow of the Palace that will grip kids from the first page to last – while teaching them about Indian history and culture along the way.

And, last but not least, will be Tony Thompson whose book Shakespeare: The Most Famous Man in London is perfect for every kid who has ever had to read Shakespeare and wondered why. Tony’s book will be available in May.

Then join us for a glass of champagne to celebrate the launch of our latest fabulous books.

Books will be available for sale on the night at a 20% discount!

AND one lucky person will win a fabulous prize on the night – Tony Thompson!

  1. I hope that the evening went well. I am quite envious and disappointed that I am too far away to attend 😦

    Oh sometimes I wish I lived in Melbourne (just sometimes!) I would love to have attended. Recently I read both Ananda and Judith’s books – very different -but both excellent!
