Children & YA 2020

As part of our involvement in READ ON this week’s events for young people include:

  • Creative Writing workshops
  • Passports events encouraging young readers to reflect on the meaning of citizenship and cultural identity in contemporary Europe and to discover work by European writers whose family heritage is from other continents, writers who have been programmed throughout the festival
  • and more …

You can view all the writers involved in our Children & YA Festival here.

With our Literary Festival spread across several months (and more to come!), for your convenience, we’ve added a Booking Available page with just the events that are currently available to book.
