Event description

Description

2019 marks the 20th anniversary of the Children's Laureate scheme. Being the laureate is the highest accolade for a children's author or illustrator here in the United Kingdom. We are delighted therefore to welcome multi-award winning illustrator Chris Riddell and Children's Laureate 2015-17 to the University of Bolton in this special year.

Chris Riddell will be talking about the impressive collection of poetry that he has illustrated, Poems to Live Your Life By at this special, unmissable event, poet Dom Conlon will give readings as Chris live draws, helping to bring meaning and immediacy to the poetry.

Chris is one of the UK's best loved and most acclaimed illustrators. He is the only illustrator to have on the CILIP Kate Greenaway medal three times. In addition, other accolades for his work include the Nestle Smarties Book Prize, the Red House Children's Book Award, the Costa and the UNESCO Other award. Chris is a passionate supporter of school libraries and is currently President of the School Library Association.

Please note there are two ticket types, one which admits a single 12+ individual and one which admits one child and one adult. Both are priced at £3 (excluding booking fees) and are redeemable against the price of Poems to Live your Life By on the evening.

Join one of the best loved illustrators in the UK for this unmissable evening.


This event is being jointly organised by Bolton Library and Museum Services, the University of Bolton and Silverwood Events.
