To celebrate the awarding of the new Amnesty CILIP Honour, winner Ross Collins (There's a Bear on My Chair) and Children's Laureate Chris Riddell draw live on stage, exploring the links between illustration, libraries and human rights. They are joined by Amnesty International UK's Nicky Parker and Chair of CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medals, Joy Court.
