A Read Regional workshop with children’s author James Nicol, author of The Apprentice Witch series.

The Apprentice Witch series is teeming with all manner of magical and marvellous and occasionally pesky creatures! In this fun interactive session you’ll create your very own new magical creature, deciding key facts about it which will be used to write a short piece featuring your new creature. This session is aimed at children aged 6 to 11 years.

The workshop will be held on Microsoft Teams. Book by emailing BarnsleyLibraryEnquiries@barnsley.gov.uk. Find out more here.

Each spring, the Read Regional campaign celebrates selected new books from the North of England. At libraries and literary festivals across the North, authors take part in events where you can hear about their writing and talk to them about their work. Read Regional 2020-21 takes place digitally. Find out more about all the titles and authors on our Read Regional page.
