With several young-adult authors and books hitting the news this week, from anniversaries to birthdays to upcoming releases, a speech on children’s literature from Philip Pullman seemed too perfect not to share.

In the talk, presented to the Royal Society of Literature back in 2001, Pullman pushes back at those who look down upon children’s lit and who denigrate adults for reading it.

The speech is excerpted from Daemon Voices: On Stories and Storytelling on Literary Hub, with permission from the book’s publisher.
