Finding the Fun in Children’s Nonfiction

23 May at 19:30 20:30 EDT

Tuesday, May 23, 7:30-8:30 pm
Online via Zoom

Non-fiction is NOT fiction’s boring cousin. Join children’s non-fiction author Rachel Poliquin as she explores the use of fictional elements like character development, world-building, and dialogue in non-fiction writing and learn a few tips and techniques to create wildly entertaining and educational books for kids.

Rachel Poliquin writes about all things orderly and disorderly in nature. She particularly likes celebrating unexpected heroes — the lumpy, the lowly, and quietly extraordinary. She has written many non-fiction books about animal and nature for children including The Museum of Odd Body Leftovers and The Strangest Thing in the Sea. Rachel lives in Vancouver with her husband and three children.
