The Vancouver Writers Fest presents
34. Empowered Kids
SARA CASSIDY, MICHAEL HUTCHINSON, TANYA LLOYD KYI
Moderator: France Perras
Sharing bold stories that amplify and inspire the ambitions of the next generation, these dynamic presentations showcase the power kids have to change the world.
As recent news proves (including the worldwide Youth for Climate strikes), kids are at the forefront of our changing world. Sara Cassidy (Nevers), Michael Hutchinson (The Case of Windy Lake), and Tanya Lloyd Kyi (Mya’s Strategy to Save the World) are each devoted to amplifying children’s voices in their work. In a special morning of bold presentations, they’ll speak to their uplifting stories of youth taking charge of their own lives and improving their communities. Whether solving mysteries on a reserve, navigating an eccentric 18th century village or trying to win a Nobel Peace Prize, these are books that cultivate the ambition, passion and curiosity of the next generation, and affirm that they can take on anything the future throws their way.
Suitable for grades 4-7.
