11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Chris Riddell, children’s author, illustrator and former Children’s Laureate, and A.F. Harrold
children’s author, poet and performer, team up to bring you an hour of the finest and funniest
family-friendly live-poetry-and-drawinginess this side of your local library’s poetry section. There will
be poems, doodles and the sharing of great wisdom from these two unique brains, including poetic
pieces from their collaboration Things You Find in a Poet’s Beard, along with things from other books
such as A.F.’s The Book of Not Entirely Useful Advice and his food-based anthology Midnight Feasts
(which was coincidentally illustrated by Chris’s daughter Katy). Basically, if you’re unsure what this
event is, it’s two men, one with a big beard and one with a pencil and paper, entertaining children
with poems on a Sunday morning for (a) money and (b) the love of it.
