Ask the Expert: How to Explain the News to Kids
September 22 at 5:30pm
Word Lab (Tent A), September 22 at 5:30pm ET.
Sit down with the experts to learn the “who, what, where, when and how” of literature. This series of free, outdoor events will satiate your curiosity about all things books! In this event, quiz freelance journalist Joyce Grant, author of Can You Believe It: How to Spot Fake News and Find the Facts, for advice and support on helping young people navigate what they see, hear and read about online. Children are digital natives – exposed constantly to information and news, some of which will entertain, some will inform and some will be upsetting. Hear from Joyce, who has been making the news accessible for kids since 2010, through her award-winning website TeachingKidsNews.com.
