Mila and her sisters live with their brother Oskar in a small forest cabin in the snow. One night, a fur-clad stranger arrives seeking shelter for himself and his men. But by the next morning, they’ve gone – taking Oskar with them. Fearful for his safety, Mila and her sisters set out to bring Oskar back – even it means going north, crossing frozen wild-lands to find a way past an eternal winter.

We are delighted to welcome Kiran - bestselling author of the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize-winning The Girl of Ink & Stars and the Costa and Blue Peter Award-shortlisted The Island at the End of Everything.

Learn about the inspiration behind the book, Kiran’s incredible journey to becoming an award-winning writer, and hear Kiran read a snippet from her story. You’ll also get the chance to purchase your own signed copy! This event will appeal to anyone who enjoy spellbinding adventure stories with a warm, fast-beating heart.

Don't forget! No children are allowed to events unaccompanied by an adult, and everyone who attends needs a ticket - it's just like going to the cinema!
