In this practical workshop, we will be exploring the notion of sound and silence in wordless picture books, sometimes called silent books.

Nikki and Mary Rose will present reflections on the theme, using recently published wordless books to exemplify ideas. These will include titles from the Silent Books exhibition at the Bologna Children's Book Fair 2022.

This will be followed by a guided discussion in small groups using Gideon Sterer's Greenaway shortlisted title The Midnight Fair.

Participants are invited to bring an additional wordless book of their own choice to the workshop.

Please note there will be a 15-minute break in this workshop.
