Speed Dating Picturebooks from around the world



I have been invited to do a talk this Saturday, 18 February, on speed dating picturebooks from around the world for the EAST Librarians Knowledge Sharing Workshop 2017 (LKSW2017) to be held at the United World College Southeast Asia. I thought I better post this a few days early to ensure that my QR Code works – and to provide more time for the conference participants (and our readers) to go through the titles here.
