This Christmas, Kingston upon Thames launches the Kingston Children’s Literary Festival and invites children and parents alike to listen to some of their favourite festive and non-festive tales from a line up some of the UK’s best-loved children’s authors in the lead-up to Christmas.
Join Katherine Webber for a 30 minute reading from her book, Wing Jones.
Wing Jones, set in the run-up to the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, is about a girl called Wing who, having one grandmother from China and another from Ghana, often feels caught between worlds. But when tragedy strikes, Wing discovers a talent for running she never knew she had.
Recommended for ages 12+, this event is completely free of charge. The reading will be held at Kingston Children’s Library.
Children must be accompanied at all times.
