Barnes Children's Literature Festival with Lauren Child…

I'll be In-Conversation with Lauren Child at the Barnes Festival on Saturday May 14th at 10.30am. We'll be talking about how Lauren goes about making a book, from her rough thoughts up to the inky end result, and lots in-between. There'll be a bit about typography and why it's so important to Lauren's storytelling. We've been working together for fifteen years so there will be plenty of anecdotes about Ruby Redfort, Charlie and Lola, Clarice Bean and other things.

You can ask questions and get answers and Lauren will be signing her books too.
