Loss, hope and the Literature Festival

Liz is delighted to be speaking at the Ilkley Literature Festival. Come along to All Saints’ Primary School to hear her explore Loss and Hope in Children’s Books on 6 October at 2:30pm.


The hour long event will include readings from The Finding of Freddie Perkins, reflections on classic childrens’ books which explore difficult themes and how they can help children process loss, and plenty of time for questions and discussion for parents.

Liz is looking forward to getting the chance to talk about some of her own childhood favourites and the impact they had on her, including amongst others The Secret Garden and A Little Princess (Hodgson Burnett), The Railway Children (Nesbit) and C. S. Lewis’ The Chronicles of Narnia alongside more modern classics in the making.
