Returning to Other Worlds with Sibéal Pounder, Hilary McKay, Amy Wilson and Robin Stevens

Tuesday 15th October 19:00 at London - Piccadilly

Our panel of best-selling middle grade children’s authors have all chosen to return to familiar stories, places and characters, which were first created by other writers. Join them as they talk about what it’s like to re-imagine these worlds and how they have been inspired by classic stories and fairy tales.  

Sibéal Pounder’s Beyond Platform 13 returns to Eva Ibbotson's much-loved creations of mist, harpies and mistaken identities; Costa winner Hilary McKay has re-spun many traditional fairy tales in Straw into Gold; Amy Wilson’s writing is inspired by classic worlds and Robin Steven’s The Guggenheim Mystery is the sequel to Siobhan Dowd’s The London Eye Mystery. Both Amy and Robin have revisited Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland in their stories in the Return to Wonderland anthology.

The panel will be chaired by critic Nicolette Jones.
