The inaugural Children's Media Symposium at the University of the Sunshine Coast is hosting a conversation between two of Australia's most celebrated and internationally-renowned children's authors: Shaun Tan and Gary Crew.

Join us to hear Shaun and Gary in a freewheeling discussion of their work, spanning contemporary classics such as Tan's The Arrival (2007), The Red Tree (2001), and The Lost Thing (2000), which he adapted into an Oscar-winning short film; Crew's The Watertower (1995) and Strange Objects (2000); and their collaboration on Memorial (2000) and The Viewer (1997), which are still best sellers after 20 years. 'In Conversation' promises to appeal to all those who love Shaun and Gary's worlds, and especially those who work with children's literature, including teachers, writers, librarians and parents.

This event is part of the larger Children's Media Symposium at USC, which runs from the 24th–26th of November 2017.

The CMS is a showcase of academic and industry perspectives on the changing landscape of children's media. Those who attend "In Conversation: Shaun Tan and Gary Crew" are also invited to listen to other industry speakers presenting that day, including leading producers of children's television.
