Join the Osborne Collection of Early Children's Books on Thursday, March 30th for our 19th Annual Albert and Clara Lahmer Memorial Lecture: An Accidental Book Reviewer, by Bernie Goedhart.
Bernie will take a look at children’s literature from a book reviewer’s point of view, share anecdotes about authors and illustrators she has met over the years, and discuss some of her favourite books -- especially picture books.
Bernie was born in Indonesia of Dutch parentage, raised in Western Canada, and resided in Montreal for almost 40 years. She has worked as a writer and editor at Canadian Press, and in public affairs at VIA Rail. She is currently retired, but still reviews books from time to time.
