Nicola Chester will be leading a fun ‘story steal mash-up’ for children and their parents. You will search the library, Hungerford Bookshop and antiques in the Arcade to find two or three ingredients to inspire your short story. It could be a book title, picture or a found object. You’ll return to the library after the hunt to ‘mash’ them all together to form a story. Nicola will be on hand to give ideas and advice.
Please bring a pen, a notebook and your imagination. This event begins at Hungerford Library and will last about three hours. Please bring a packed lunch. Advised age: 7 years upwards.
