Hysterically funny author of the bestselling Artemis Fowl series, Eoin Colfer talks about W.A.R.P: The Reluctant Assassin – the first thrilling book in his new steampunk, time-travelling, adrenaline-fuelled adventure series. Eoin will introduce you to his fantastic new villain, Riley aka The Reluctant Assassin, a Victorian boy who is suddenly plucked from his own time into the 21st century, accused of murder and sent on the run. This event is presented in partnership with Manchester Children’s Book Festival. We will also be announcing the winners of our Postcards from the Past competition and details of a brand new time travel competition at the event. Suitable for 9 –11 year olds.

There are a limited number of free tickets available to Widening Participation schools via Manchester Metropolitan University – to apply for these, please email hlssschools@mmu.ac.uk
