Event description

Description

Join us as we celebrate the publication of Damaris Young's thrilling and heartfelt children’s fantasy book, The Switching Hour! Bewitchingly beautiful writing, a spine-tingling spooky story, characters to believe in, The Switching Hour is at its heart a book about family, the power of female friendships and the fear of forgetting those you love.

Amaya lives with her grandmother, her small brother Kaleb and her pet goat Tau in a land suffering a terrible drought. Every night, the doors must be locked after twilight, the Switching Hour, because the drought has awoken Badeko, a creature that snatches people away to eat their dreams.
Three days later, the memory that they existed is gone from those that knew them, and those that are left are afflicted with The Sorrow Sickness - a grief which consumes a person without them knowing why. When Kaleb is taken by Badeko, Amaya must journey into the terrifying forest to find her brother before she forgets him.

This is your chance to meet a local author passionate about inspiring and empowering young readers with knowledge and action about climate change and ask her questions about this summer's next great read!
