Wednesday October 14th @7:30pm - Ben Lambe
Ben will take questions on his book 'You're Nicked' - a witty analysis of the most popular TV police dramas of the last few decades.
Thursday October 15th @7:30pm - Julia Tedd
This Question and Answer session with Julia Tedd will help to explore why some children struggle to learn to read. Julia’s research has shown that some children struggle to learn and understand slightly more complicated grammar structures. This can lead to confusion and misinterpretation in everyday life and in education (especially subjects such as science when understanding hypothetical scenarios is essential).
Julia has written two story books to help children become familiar with these structures from an early age, in a fun and engaging way. She hopes that as many children as possible will enjoy Night-time Cat and Box Cat at home and in school, which will help them to reach their potential.
