An unmissable conversation between two of the nation’s best-loved storytellers.

Katherine Rundell is an award-winning author, and widely acknowledged as one of the finest children’s writers of her generation. Her new book Impossible Creatures is a clarion call to readers to fight to save precious creatures of all kinds before they vanish before our eyes.

Sir Michael Morpurgo is a former Children’s Laureate, and author of countless classics from Private Peaceful to War Horse. Michael founded Farms for City Children with his wife Clare, and in a new edition of his book All Around the Year, he documents life during a farming year, accompanied by poems from Ted Hughes. He is a passionate advocate for access to nature and reading for pleasure.

The living things of the natural world – their wildness, strangeness, wonder and beauty – are a deep source of inspiration for both writers.

Join Katherine and Michael as they explore the enduring power of storytelling, the special gifts of childhood, and why young people’s right to nature, play and creativity needs defending now, more than ever.

In partnership with LoveReading and LoveReading4Kids
