The countdown is on for a fantastic line-up of children’s authors to come together this Saturday 16 July, 2022 at the prestigious and iconic London location, The British Library.

This weekend, we are inviting you to attend The Week Junior Summer of Reading LIVE!, a brand new event supported by LoveReading4Kids for children aged 8-14, which aims to encourage young people to read more over the summer by igniting their imagination.

Featuring your favourite authors, live on stage, this event will spark your inspiration and imagination. Whether it's becoming the hero of your favourite book, or experiencing all kinds of amazing places, reading really is a superpower!

Reading for pleasure is a gift that will last a lifetime, so we hope that attendees will be inspired by some of our much-loved and best-selling authors Elle McNicoll, M.G. Leonard, Sam Sedgman, Peter Bunzl, Katherine Woodfine, Sharna Jackson and, just announced, Frank Cottrell-Boyce.

And, thanks to our friends at The Week Junior, you can now get an exclusive 20% off tickets using the link below.


M.G. Leonard and Sam Sedgman

Join best-selling authors, M.G. Leonard and Sam Sedgman as they bring to life Adventures on Trains: Sabotage on the Solar Express, a thrilling and hugely entertaining adventure story. Hear how the duo started their love for writing children's books together, as well as the inspiration behind the book.

 Phil Earle and Emma Carroll

Hear from two amazing authors – Phil Earle, winner of the British Book Awards Children's Fiction Book of the Year 2022, and 'Queen of Historical Fiction' Emma Carroll – for an fascinating journey into the past. You'll find out all about their latest books, While the Storm Rages, and Escape to the River Sea, and discover how history inspires their writing.

Frank Cottrell-Boyce

Listen as Frank Cottrell-Boyce tells you all about Noah and how he coped without the help of technology. Throughout the session Frank sensitively explores how our unquestioning reliance on technology can weaken our mind and survival skills – and perhaps shows that sometimes we'd be better off leaving our phones off!

And much much more!
