Meet The Author: Flynn's Window + Book Reading

Sat 14 Dec, 12.00-12.30, Ages 3-7.

We're delighted to welcome author Yeliz Hakki for an interactive reading of her book Flynn's Window, which takes us into the imagination of Flynn the cat and what he sees as he looks out of his window every day...

Yeliz will give a reading of her book, with the pages projected onto the big screen so you can follow the story with her and immerse yourself in the illustrations. She will then give a talk about what inspired the book, how she got into writing and illustrating. She'll also be able to give top tips to any inspiring young writers and answer any questions from the audience.

Tickets are just £5 and every attendee will get a signed copy of the book (RRP £7.99) included in their ticket price. The recommended age range for this event is 3-7 years.

The event will follow activities to create your own Flynn-inspired artwork (or take an activity sheet away with you to do at home).
