Multi award-winning author Catherine Rayner takes over the reading chair at our next Book Club event
We’re really excited to welcome our next author to the reading chair at our Book Club on Saturday, 18th November - the multi award-winning author and illustrator Catherine Rayner, who has just launched her 21st book, ‘Molly, Olive and Dexter – The Guessing Game’
The free monthly Book Club was officially launched in October by authors, Linda Erskine and Justin Davies, to encourage a love for reading, the joy of discovering new books and the chance to meet various authors.
Catherine, whose extensive list of books include ‘Victor - The wolf with worries’ and ‘Arlo - The lion who couldn’t sleep’ has also illustrated books for many well-known authors, like Julia Donaldson and Michael Morpurgo.
Her awards include ‘The Kate Greenaway Medal’ and ‘Booktrust Early Years Award’.
On Saturday, 18th November at 12noon and 2pm, she will be running fun and interactive storytelling sessions for children aged two to seven at The Centre, Livingston, across from Waterstones and next to River Island.
There will also be a live ‘draw along’ which is a step-by-step guide to drawing the characters in her books, including ‘Augustus the tiger’. Activity sheets and stickers will be available for kids to take home.
The Centre, Livingston Book Club follows on from the recent installation of the shopping centre’s free book recycling vending machine to enable people to swap their favourite novels.
