THE NATURE OF STORIES by Piers Torday
How do you create characters that readers will care about? Can stories change the world? Piers Torday, UK author of The Last Wild trilogy and winner of the Guardian’s Children’s Book Award, speaks about his experience writing children’s literature and what makes an award-winning novel. The talk will be followed by book sales and signings and light refreshments.
Piers Torday began his career in theatre and then television as a producer and writer. His bestselling first book for children, The Last Wild, was nominated for the CILIP Carnegie Medal. His second book, The Dark Wild, won the Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize. His latest book, The Lost Magician, will be published in September 2018.
This talk is co-presented with Closetful of Books and is made possible with the support of Tanglin Trust School.
