Once Upon A Time: Neil Gaiman and Margo Lanagan

Location:
Friday, 3:45-5:00pm

In response to the controversy surrounding her novel Tender Morsels, Margo Lanagan asks, "How on earth do people imagine we equip children for life, if we never show them the sorts of issues other people encounter, if we never talk through with them how they might deal with difficulty, or violence, or unexpected shocks and surprises?" In recent years the young adult novel has become a much disputed genre; simultaneously lauded and condemned, it is variously described as too violent and serious for its presumed audience, too juvenile and fantastical to be considered literature, and as a marketing invention that never in fact had an audience. Margo Lanagan and Neil Gaiman have earned reputations as 'crossover' writers. Lanagan's Tender Morsels has been lauded as her first 'adult' novel as well as a young adult classic while Neil Gaiman's work continues to cheerfully decline all attempts at classification. Join them in conversation with Kate De Goldi as she asks: "What makes it children's literature?"
