ALCS sponsors the 10th Bath Children’s Literature Festival

For a third year, ALCS is delighted to be sponsoring Bath Children’s Literature Festival in early October. Now in its tenth year, the Festival programme is once again jam-packed with well-known children’s authors and illustrators from the UK and abroad including the likes of David Walliams, Liz Pichon and Michael Morpurgo.

The Bath Children's Literature Festival is the largest dedicated children’s book festival in Europe, and presents over 80 public, ticketed sessions, along with an extensive programme of events in schools. Its ethos is to entertain children, and to enthuse them about reading.  ALCS is sponsoring several sessions including a writing masterclass on how to create your own Doctor Who adventure. Other events include a storytelling adventure with ALCS member Julia Donaldson, author of bestselling children’s classic The Gruffalo. The ALCS-sponsored events also provide us with an opportunity to educate younger members of the audience about the importance of copyright and authors' rights.
