Michael Morpurgo

Michael Morpurgo is best known as the author of the West End hit "War Horse", which was recently turned into a movie by Steven Spielberg. But this evening he will be talking about his children's books with writer and broadcaster Nicolette Jones.

Amongst other things, he will be discussing whether children should be exposed to suffering, why it is so important to pass on history to them; the magic of stage adaptations, and how children can be encouraged to read and write.
