Longsight Big Book Bash on 21st June

Longsight Stanley Grove Big Book BashI visited Stanley Grove Academy last year and had the pleasure of opening their new library as well as spending a couple of days telling stories, talking about writing and showing how to draw things.

They have asked me back! This time to open their Big Book Bash – a whole afternoon of book related fun and wonder! I gather there will be a Ricky Rocket rocket in the opening parade through Longsight, which is east of Manchester, that starts at 2.00pm – I can’t wait to see that

Each year has chosen a different book to work on so there will be displays and activities based on those.

In the evening I’ll be reading a bed time story before the whole event finishes at 8.00pm. No doubt I’ll have some film and pictures of the day to show you afterwards.

If you live in the area and love books – I’ll look forward to seeing you there!
