"Mehr als Himmelblau und Rosarot? - Kinderbücher jenseits von Rollenklischees"

In the organizer's words:

In Germany, books for children and young people that break down stereotypes and address diversity or gender are often controversial.

We would like to address this topic at an event in cooperation with the VHS Cologne:

On Thursday, November 23, experts will talk about their experiences and research findings on diversity in children's literature. At the same time, well-known faces from the queer community will read from children's books.
