Manchester Children’s Book Festival
This year marks the third annual Manchester Children’s Book Festival. Scheduled events will include author visits and family activities.
“One of the greatest pleasures of my working life continues to be the Manchester Writing School at MMU, where we foster a real sense of family, achievement and celebration, and an ethos of nurturing and innovation. It is my hope that, through the Manchester Children’s Book Festival, we can pass these values and aspirations down to the next generation of readers – and creative writers.” -Carol Ann Duffy, Poet Laureate and Festival Creative Director
