We are delighted to announce that Lynne Chapman best selling author and illustrator for well over 20 years will be visiting the Linton Children’s Book Festival in 2012.
She says “writers and illustrators spend far too long in the company of their computer or drawing board, so I love it when I get the chance to escape to the real world for a while and meet some of the children that read my books.”
At the Linton Children’s Book Festival Lynne will be doing a storytelling session for younger children and an illustration workshop for children aged 7+.
Keep checking the website for details on how to book.
