Description

Join us in celebrating the start of the festive season at our annual YuleFest event, where we will be presenting a series of free talks by an exciting diverse range of bestselling authors throughout the day. Pick up a complimentary mince pie and port, sit back and listen to one of our guest speakers and purchase a signed copy for a special Christmas gift.

At 1:30pm, children's bestselling author Lauren St John will be joining us to discuss her stunning new Christmas story 'The Snow Angel'.

Growing up in vibrant, crowded Nairobi, Makena has only one dream: to climb Mount Kenya like her hero, her mountain guide father. But when her beautiful world is shattered, she finds that in the city's dark places there are a thousand ways to fall, each more deadly than any crevasse. In a world of strangers, does she dare trust Snow, whose ballet dreams are haunted by a past she's still running from? And is the sparkling fox friend or foe?

After a fresh start in the Scottish Highlands turns bad, Makena flees to the mountains. But will they betray her or be the making of her?

Lauren St John is the author of the multi award-winning children’s series The White Giraffe, the Laura Marlin Mysteries (Blue Peter Book of the Year Award 2011) and The One Dollar Horse series.
