Join us for a full day here at Seven Stories as we explore our nationally recognised collection of British children's literature, through imaginative and inspiring storytimes, illustration and creative writing workshops, book clubs, access to archive materials, such as draft copies, scripts, notebooks, plus sketches and final artwork form some of our most well-known authors and illustrators.
