Children's Book Week, 25 - 31 May

Children's book week at Greenway's Literary Festival

Fairytale makers and puzzle solvers, children's books were brought to life at the Greenway Literary Festival during May half term.

 

Young ones

Throughout the week there were a variety of events to get involved with. Visitors were whisked away to other worlds with bicycling botanist Isabella Necessity, sat down with Torbay Libraries at their story time and craft sessions, or joined Queen Camellia as she explored all the stories from Greenway’s Enchanted Woods over the last 10 years.

 

Inspiring minds

Can your budding writers plot and create a mystery? Or would they prefer to hear tales of fantastical lands? Whatever they fancied, there was an event to suit. Check out the full programme to see what went on during the festival.

Young adults

Critically acclaimed and award winning writers explored their novels during children’s week. Themes from real life journeys in South Africa facing apartheid and racism, to uplifting and empowering tales set in modern day. There was wild writing infused with nature and a fantasy world far removed from here. 

 

Book Parade

On Monday 27 May favourite characters took part in the book parade around the Walled Garden.
