Humber Mouth Children’s Event

November 15, 2015 @ 1:30 pm - 2:48 pm

At Hull Central Library, 1.30pm. Free event

Matt Haig: Matt Haig believes that ‘in a world trying to increasingly isolate us from our environment and our true selves, books are our routes to freedom, and to each other’. Translated into 30 languages, his novels include the bestsellers “The Last Family in England”, “The Radleys” and “The Humans”. His novels for children include “Shadow Forest”, “To Be A Cat” and the YA novel “Echo Boy”.

After an inspiring evening discussing his Zen Bible serenity handbook “Reasons To Stay Alive”, Matt Haig returns to Hull for a very special afternoon’s reading for children and parents. “A Boy Called Christmas” is the story of the young Father Christmas growing up in 18th Century Finland. It’s a tale of “adventure, snow, kidnap, elves, more snow, and a little boy called Nikolas who isn’t afraid to believe in magic.”

Already hailed as an evergreen classic, “A Boy Called Christmas” looks set to find a home under Christmas trees all over the world. This is a wonderful opportunity to be inspired by a master storyteller at the height of his bewitchingly wonderful powers.
