Breaking New Ground

Celebrating British Children’s Writers & illustrators of Colour

Breaking New Ground

Pop Up worked with live literature organisation Speaking Volumes and children’s reading charity BookTrust to promote, celebrate and evaluate their ground-breaking Breaking New Ground initiative. Breaking New Ground is an invaluable tool for anyone working with children’s books – teachers, librarians, booksellers, programmers and producers – and seeking to diversify their bookshelves or events. Breaking New Ground was launched at The London Book Fair 2019, followed by a series of events in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to raise awareness across the country. Check out the stunning catalogue here, and discover some of the most exciting contemporary children’s authors working in the UK today.
