Northern Children’s Book Festival (NCBF) has now been running for 32 years and in 2015 we will be welcoming some extra special author guests to deliver sessions in local schools.
For two weeks, from Monday 9th – Friday 20th November, a host of fantastic and inspiring authors, poets, storytellers and illustrators will visit schools and libraries all across the North East. The festival fortnight will culminate in a Gala Day which, this year, is taking place in Durham Town Hall on Saturday 21st November.
This year, Northumberland are welcoming these fantastic authors:
Award-winning children’s author Guy Bass will be talking about his latest book in the ‘Stitch Head’ (see photo!) series. Guy will also be appearing at this year’s Gala Day.
Liz Million, amazing picture book author and illustrator. Liz will also demonstrating her fantastic artwork at this year’s Gala Day.
Craig Bradley is a fantastic writer and performance poet.
And, last but not least, the wonderful Viv French, author of a vast range of fantastic children’s books. Viv French is an ambassador for NCBF and will also be performing at this year’s Gala Day.
We’re looking forward to a fantastic fortnight with our authors and hope to see lots of you at this year’s Gala Day:
