An Evening with Chris Riddell

‘The Doodler’

This is a past event.

‘The Doodler’

We’re delighted to welcome Chris Riddell, the 2015-2017 UK Children's Laureate, to Haworth. Chris is an accomplished artist and the political cartoonist for The Observer. He has enjoyed great acclaim for his books for children, which have won a number of major prizes, including the 2001, 2004 and 2016 CILIP Kate Greenaway Medals. Goth Girl and the Ghost of a Mouse won the Costa Children's Book Award 2013. His previous work for Macmillan includes the bestselling Ottoline books, The Emperor of Absurdia, and, with Paul Stewart, the Muddle Earth books, the Scavenger series and the Blobheads series. 

Join us in Haworth Old School Room to hear Chris read from his work, ask questions – such as what inspired Goth Girl and the Wuthering Fright – and hear about his latest Goth Girl book, Goth Girl and the Sinister Symphony. Chris will be happy to sign books and books will be available to purchase.
