An Audience with Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks

Thursday October 10th. 2.00pm-3.30pm 
At Heartlands High School Theatre, Station Road N22 7ST

£10 and £5 Tickets now available.

Join the nation’s best-loved and best-selling picture book duo for an unforgettable hour of stories, singing, drawing and tremendous fun. Julia’s live shows, featuring her husband Malcolm on guitar, are the stuff of legend and Lydia brings an exciting dimension to this event as she draws scenes from the books (and maybe the odd audience member too) before your very eyes!

Together they will revisit their classic, WHAT THE LADYBIRD HEARD, their recent hit, THE SINGING MERMAID, and introduce their brand new book for autumn, SUGARLUMP AND THE UNICORN.

Julia Donaldson is the UK's most successful picture book author and was the Children’s Laureate 2011–2013. Her titles include the acknowledged modern classic, THE GRUFFALO, illustrated by Axel Scheffler, and the young fiction series PRINCESS MIRROR-BELLE, illustrated by Lydia Monks. Julia's brilliant events for children at schools, libraries and literary festivals are always in demand. Julia lives in Glasgow with her husband.

Lydia Monks is one of the most original picture book artists working today. Her distinctive use of colour and collage has won her critical acclaim and several awards, including the Smarties Prize. In 2011 she was selected by Daybreak to feature in their What’s the Story? competition, illustrating the winning entry THE BEAR AND THE BEES which was published on World Book Day 2012. Lydia lives in Sheffield with her two daughters.

Tickets cost £10 HERE (Ticket price includes a copy of What the Ladybird Heard or The Singing Mermaid).
Or £5 HERE (Entrance to the show only).

A great selection of Julia and Lydia's books will also be on sale at the Theatre on the day.
