BAD BOOKS: IS THERE
SUCH A THING?
AndrewHalls, (Headmaster, King’s
College School), GemmaMalley
(BookTrust), Tanya Landman (author
andmember of The Empathy Lab)
Is it right to encourage others to read
whatever they like? Andrew Halls has
banned certain books from the King’s
College School library. Children’s author
Gemma Malley argues all reading should
be encouraged. Tanya Landman believes
literacy is the key tool to improving a child’s
empathetic understanding of the world.
This promises to be a heated debate on
one of the hot topics of our time.
