Blom die lesers soos die boeke?

Jakes Gerwel-gespreksreeks by die Suidoosterfees
Aangebied deur die Jakes Gerwel Stigting en die ATKV

In samewerking met NB-Uitgewers

Met Fiona van Kerwel, Crystal-Donna Roberts en Thérèse Hulme

Die letterkunde blom, ook vir jong lesers. Skrywers ken hulle mark en weet hoe om stories op te dis wat tot lesers spreek. Daarvan getuig Crystal Donna Roberts, voormalige deelnemer aan ’n Jakes Gerwel Stigting-mentorskap, se suksesvolle Speurder Sammi-reeks. So ook spreek Fiona van Kerwel se versamelbundel Leë blikkies vol liefde en ander verhale tot jong lesers. Maar as ’n mens kyk na die geletterdheidskrisis in die land, wonder jy of kinders werklik lees. Of is die leserstal besig om te klim soos wat die boeke meer word? Thérèse Hulme, skrywer van Praat jy! en fasiliteerder van die Jakes Gerwel Stigting se narratiewe leerprojek vir leerders van die Kaapse Vlakte, lei die gesprek.

Jakes Gerwel Discussions at the Suidoosterfees
Presented by the Jakes Gerwel Foundation and the ATKV

Blom die lesers soos die boeke?

In collaboration with NB Publishers

With Fiona van Kerwel, Crystal Donna Roberts and Thérèse Hulme

Literature is flourishing, also for young readers. Writers are in tune with their markets and know what to dish up. Testimony to this is the successful Speurder Sammi series by Crystal Donna Roberts, former attendee of a Jakes Gerwel Foundation mentorship programme. Fiona van Kerwel’s collection Leë blikkies vol liefde en ander verhale also appeals to young readers. But if you look at the literacy crisis in the country, you may well ask: Do children really read enough? Or are the number of readers growing as more books are published? Thérèse Hulme, author of My word! and facilitator of the Jakes Gerwel Foundation’s narrative learning initiative in the Cape Flats, leads the discussion.
