Andy Stanton (2010 children's event)
Highly energetic, funny-man Andy Stanton reveals how he began writing the news as a small child and his creative development to ‘the truth is lemon meringue’. Reading from jotters that he wrote when he was eight Stanton discovers with the audience where he saw ‘ugly things in a cage’ and why his original staple ending of ‘and then I went home’ isn’t used in his books at this sold out event. As part of our Elsewhere project we commissioned him to write Welcome to Flaxland, which can be read exclusively on our website.
