Our Work

Seven Stories is Britain's National home for children's literature. 

We care for a world class children's literature archive and run a lively visitor centre that celebrates books through an inspiring programme of exhibitions, events, performances and storytelling. An ambitious outreach programme sees our exhibitions tour across the UK, takes books and their authors into schools and uses stories to help disadvantaged children and young people read, learn, succeed and achieve their own potential.
