August Events

Following a whirlwind tour of Kent – thanks to everyone who came along to see me – I’ve got some smashing events lined up for August.

Library tour

Our libraries do a fantastic job under increasingly difficult circumstances.  They’re one of the few places left in our world where you can go, spend time, browse books, sit and work, study, read or daydream completely free and without obligation. I’ve been a member of Cardiff libraries for over 20 years and I’m thrilled to be able to give something back to them this summer.

Events are free and best for children age 7-12, though everyone is welcome. There will be stories, games, craft and lots of fun. Do pop in if you can. And if you can’t, borrow a book from your library this summer.

8th August 2pm, Fairwater Library

15th August 2pm, Llandaff North Library

19th August 4pm, Canton Library

23rd August 10am, Llanedeyrn Library


Robin Steven Tour

This is very exciting. Robin Stevens is coming to Cardiff and I’m on the welcome committee. Not just me, but PG Bell, author of the Train to Impossible Places. You’ll know that I’m a huge fan of his books, and of Robin’s too.

We’ll all be in Waterstones, Cardiff, at 2.30pm, Saturday August 10th. Entry is free, but places are limited so it’ll be best to contact the store to book a spot.
