Susin Nielsen Interview

By UCL Faculty of Arts & Humanities, on 15 February 2022

I chat with fabulous Canadian author Susin Nielsen about her new book, writing for TV and how it differs to writing for children, and why she returns again and again to middle grade fiction. We also discuss the difference in showing internal thoughts in novels and on TV and how powerful and influencing children’s books can be on our lives.
