Get lost in a world of books. From big pictures to dangerous adventures, join us in exploring the wonderful world of children’s and young adult literature.

The entertaining and energetic John Agard invites you for an afternoon celebrating Caribbean culture, poetry and the power of language. John Agard’s poem, Windrush Child, was originally written in 1998 as part of the 50th anniversary celebrations of the arrival of the SS Windrush. This year, Walker Books, are publishing this beautifully evocative poem for the first time with illustrations from Sophie Bass.
