Who’s In The Woodshed? Bookworms with Nyanda Foday

1 April @ 11:00 am - 11:45 am


Former Birmingham Young Poet Laureate Nyanda Foday gives an inspirational and poetic introduction to the vital need for every child to see themselves in the books the read.

What does a book mean to those who search for acceptance and understanding? A place to find friends, feel part of a family, or to be your true self. A good book takes you to new worlds, the right one shows you can exist in this one.

So for all bookworms – lovers of books – the world is waiting for you.

Presented in partnership with Andersen Press. Followed by book signing.

She strives to connect with others where she can by sharing and listening to others’ work. Her parents moved from Sierra Leone to London before having Nyanda. Bookworms is Nyanda’s debut picture book.
