Former Birmingham Young Poet Laureate Nyanda Foday gives an inspirational and poetic introduction to the vital need for every child to see themselves in the books they read.

What does a book mean to those who search for acceptance and understanding? A place to find friends, feel part of a family, or to be your true self. A good book takes you to new worlds, the right one shows you can exist in this one.

So for all bookworms – lovers of books – the world is waiting for you.

Presented in partnership with Andersen Press. Followed by book signing.

For ages 3+

Under 1s are free, but will require a 'lap' ticket, which can either by booked in advance by calling us, or on arrival by informing a staff member at the Welcome Desk.
