We chat with Jill Parsons from Imayla CIC about building creative connections with children in St Paul's Library last summer. She discusses the challenges and rewards of letting children lead on creative projects, how to enthuse them about literature, and working with to process difficult emotions using art and books.
We also talk about what we've been reading, and introduce a new feature, Dear Shelf Life, in which Jill asks us about book recommendations for young people's mental health.
