Vancouver Writers Fest – Friendship and Fitting In (Grades 4–7) – virtual & in-person
19 October 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Finding friends and fitting in is always challenging—even more for kids when they move to a new community, or join a new team… or are secretly a lizard. At the Vancouver Writers Fest, these three graphic novels for Middle Grade kids show the turbulence of navigating new situations, from swim team to riding competitions to a new school, and offer solace and solutions for how to deal with this universal experience of figuring out what it means to belong. Kids will be engaged and reassured by Johnnie Christmas (Swim Team), Faith Erin Hicks (Ride On), and Jonathan Hill (Tales of a Seventh-Grade Lizard Boy). Grades 4–7.
This event is presented both in-person and virtually (on YouTube).
