Saturday 17th August, 1pm
Please join us to hear local author Samantha Wheeler chat about her books, including her most recent - and our current Middle Grade Book Club pick - Everything I've Never Said, inspired by her daughter who has Rett Syndrome.
This is a child-friendly event and we welcome ages 7+ all the way to adults! Hear what inspired Samantha's books as well as her writing process as an author. There will be a short Q&A and we will have copies of Samantha's books available to have signed on the day.
This is a free event, but bookings are required as we have limited seating space.
