Children's Events

Do you want to hear the latest about Darren Shan's Sagas, or listen to David Almond tell the True Tale of the Monster Billy Dean? Is your greatest desire to hear Mr Gum creator Andy Stanton wish you 'good evening', or find out how much Jacqueline Wilson's jewellery weighs? Are you keen to learn how to write a book of your own, from the people who know best?

Whether your prefer Blood and Blade or Green Glass Beads, you'll find something to enjoy in our children's programme, a fun-packed series of talks, workshops and masterclasses from world-renowned writers.

We have some great children's authors coming in 2012, including David Almond, Tim Bowler, Linda Davies, Elspeth Graham, Kes Gray, Julia Johnson, Mal Peet, Qais Sedki, Darren Shan, Wafa Tarnowska and Jacqueline Wilson. We're also lucky enough to be hosting the book launch for Dubai Abulhoul's much-anticipated Galagolia!

The full list of events for children and young adults is now online: check them out here:
