How do children’s book authors write about the difficult subject of flight and expulsion? What kind of children’s literature is needed to encourage sensitive yet open discussions about this topic? In conversation with Ibtisam Barakat, versatile Palestinian-American children’s book author and winner of this year’s Sheikh Zayed Award, and Kirsten Boie, well-known German author of children’s and young adult books, this panel discussion sheds light on these and other important questions from different perspectives and (writing) experiences.
