Michael Rosen - Good Ideas: How to be Your Child's (and Your Own) Best Teacher

Thursday 11th September 2014 7pm - 8pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event

We can never get enough of Michael Rosen, and happily it seems the feeling is mutual, as the broadcaster, poet, novelist and former Children's Laureate returns following his recent appearance at our Grand Opening Festival to talk about an issue very close to his heart.

Launching his new book for adults Good Ideas: How to be Your Child's (and Your Own) Best Teacher, Michael Rosen makes the case for putting play and enjoyment at the heart of a new, interdisciplinary approach to education, arguing that our penchant for discrete academic subjects limits how we see the world.

As the author of We're Going on a Bear Hunt, Michael Rosen's Sad Book and last year's Alphabetical, and writer of the 'Dear Mr. Gove' column for the Guardian, as well as a holder of a PhD in Education and numerous honorary doctorates, Michael Rosen is uniquely qualified to advise on the current state of education in the UK. This event promises a bold and insightful look at an eternally important subject.

Venue: The Auditorium at Foyles, Level 6, 107 Charing Cross Road

Tickets: £5 per person. Simply add the required number to the basket below.

Please note that no physical tickets will be issued; the email despatch confirmation you receive will be proof of your booking.

NB While children are welcome to attend, the event is primarily aimed at adults
