About this Event

I am delighted to be launching a curated programme of online events celebrating writers and illustrators of exceptional repute.

Each guest has been invited for their outstanding contribution to the world of children’s literature and for the exceptional quality of their writing and illustration. Audience involvement is encouraged. You can submit questions in advance and become an active participant in the event or simply enjoy the chat.

Join me for in-depth discussions exploring exceptional careers in literature and some memorable celebrations. All from the comfort of your armchair.
