Abstract

While information literacy usually focuses on the use of non-fiction texts, critical literacy is often explored through various forms of fiction. This chapter explores how by adopting critical literacy approaches, libraries across all sectors may find opportunities to use fictional texts in new ways to explore different notions of ‘truth’ through critical readings.
