Book soon on 0870 160 2522 to see authors including Roger McGough, Lauren Child (in a session for six-year-olds and over, focusing on her latest book, The Princess and the Pea) and Geraldine McCaughrean (pictured), who will be speaking to 12-year-olds and above about The White Darkness, last year's novel shortlisted for the Whitbread Children's Book of the Year.
