If you know us well, then you will know that we are committed to get children (and their grown ups) partnered up with the perfect book. Part of the process is, of course, having a conversation with someone about what they like, and then pointing them in the right direction. However, another way (the best way) to inspire the act of reading, is to share a book and who better to do that, than the author or illustrator that created it? It’s exciting to meet a person who loves books so much, that they have been creative and brave enough to share theirs with the world.
That’s why we love to bring authors and illustrators to Chicken and Frog, as often as possible. In the coming months, we have quite a few visiting us here in sunny Brentwood.
So, here’s the run down of author visits (so far), between now and the end of the year:
Hollies’ books are, quite frankly, laugh out loud funny! (Age 3+)
Nicky will be bringing along dinosaur artefacts, as well as her beautiful books. (Age 4+)
This event is slightly different, as it is to raise awareness and funds for the Young People’s Counselling Services, here in Brentwood. Louis and Kathryn will be joining us from Spain, via Skype!
Perfect timing, just before Halloween. Magic and charm are the order of the day. (Age 7+)
Local author, Molly Looby, will be giving a talk, before mingling amongst the audience to sign books and answer your questions. (Age 13+)
Paula’s book is our Book Club pick for October, so we’re delighted that you’ll have the chance to meet her in December.
We will also be joined by Chitra Soundar in October, but need to finalise the details before we share them with you.
So there you have it, a run down of the author events taking place over the coming months. All events (apart from Molly’s) are free, so just turn up!
