About the event:

Thursday 11th February 2021, 1.30pm

Come on an adventure with Michael Morpurgo beamed into your classroom, living room or virtual classroom from his home.

Michael will be talking about some of his best-loved books including War Horse, The Butterfly LionShadow and Private Peaceful, as well as reading from his latest book, Boy Giant.

There will be a live Q&A at the end of the event and we would encourage children to submit questions to their teachers in advance of the event. 

You will be able to access the event on the YouTube livestream video below at 1.30pm on the day of the event or on catch-up after it has aired and the event will last approximately 45min.
