It will include three past Children’s Laureates: A Treasury of Songs with Julia Donaldson (with a special guest appearance from the Gruffalo), the celebrated Jacqueline Wilson and the author and illustrator Chris Riddell.
Hosted at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, an exciting day is in store. Individual talks in our Concert Hall are followed by the opportunity for book signings as you’re invited to enter a literature-lover’s haven in a specially curated bookshop installation.
