Author Events: Jacqueline Harvey and Stephanie Dowrick

We were very excited to host not one but two children's events last Saturday the 19th! Jacqueline Harvey joined us for a lively and interesting chat about the next installments of the popular Alice-Miranda and Clementine Rose series. Our children's area was filled with eager faces asking questions about the writing profession and of Stephanie's travels. Jacqueline shared her travel stories, as well as some hilarious conversations she's had with children around the world about her books. With props and costumes ready, the kids even joined in on a role-playing activity, acting along to scenes from the book as Jacqueline read them out!

Later in the afternoon we were joined by award-winning author Stephanie Dowrick who treated us all to a reading of her new picture book, The Moon Shines Out of the Dark. The book tells a touching and beautifully illustrated story of a young boy called Harry who takes comfort in the presence of the moon while he misses his mother. Lovely and enchanting, the reading was very special indeed. Stephanie will join us again on February 8th at 7.30pm to discuss her new book, Everyday Kindness.
