Event description

Description

Meet the author and illustrator Kate Pankhurst

Join us for this fun and interactive talk from children’s author Kate Pankhurst, whose books include the ‘Mariella Mysteries’ and ‘Fantastically Great Women Who Changed the World’.

Kate believes that “Books help us imagine possibilities”, and that the books we read as children form an important part of who we become as adults.

Through sharing what she knows about a range of amazing women and how they changed the world; including Amelia Earhart, Jane Austen, Marie Curie, Anne Frank and Emmeline Pankhurst, Kate will help the young people who attend unravel the process of writing and illustrating a book. Kate is herself a descendent of Emmeline Pankhurst.

The children who take part will get a chance to do their own illustrations and develop their own ideas for plots and characters.

Open to schools in Kirklees and also to members of the public.

Suitable for children aged 7 to 11 (guideline only). Parents, guardians and teachers are welcome to attend with children. Please book for the total number of participants (both adults and children).


Those who attend will get the chance to purchase Kate’s books.
