Details

Join Lauren Child, Waterstones Children's Laureate, and learn the stories behind the stories.

The multi-award-winning author and artist will discuss her influences and creative process and some of her best-loved characters. Find out the stories behind Charlie and Lola, Clarice Bean and the amazing spy-kid, code-cracker Ruby Redfort. In an illustrated talk, Lauren will share her fascination with sibling relationships, how watching television as a child shaped her artistic vision and the pleasure of daydreaming.

Lauren will also be introducing her latest Charlie and Lola book, The Dog with Nice Ears.
