Aliens with Einstein heads eating … maple syrup?

Pigeons is honoured this year to be part of literary discussions as far away as Canada!
Audience members at The Ninth International Conference of the Book held in Toronto later this year will be captivated as Dr Marnee Watkins shares a paper co-written with Dr Pam Macintyre entitled “Aliens with Einstein Heads: Creative storytelling partnerships between child, author and artist.”

Pigeons has come a long way, and the paper discusses its development from an idea inspired by Jenna and Lachlann’s internships at 826 Valencia, to the far reaching project it is today, bringing together children, authors and artists, and collecting their shared stories.

Best of all, this is much more than an essay; the voices of the young people involved in our projects will be incorporated into the interactive presentation.

Stay tuned for more news from the conference.
