Thrilled to be asked to speak on World Book Day at the Stoke Lodge Hotel, about my book Donna and Dermot on the Move, illustrated by Jamie O’Neill. I will be speaking about literacy and how reading builds empathy. Huge thanks to Devon Life magazine for organising. Also on the bill is Devon-based writer Philip Reeve whose book Mortal Engines is being made into a film by the director Peter Jackson and out this December. Here is a sneak preview of the trailer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fupYIggOq38
