In a spectacular event, chaired Mairi Kidd, three of our best writers for children get together to discuss the joys of escaping through reading and creative writing: Waterstones Children’s Laureate Cressida Cowell, author-illustrator of the How To Train Your Dragon series; New York Times bestselling author Eoin Colfer; and Sunday Times bestselling author Kiran Millwood Hargrave.

You’ll be the very first to hear about Never and Forever, the final book in Cressida Cowell’s captivating #1 bestselling The Wizards of Once series. This event is its exclusive pre-launch! And she also tells you about the Scottish inspiration for How to Train Your Dragon.

Eoin Colfer reveals his hotly-anticipated Deny All Charges, the latest in his new series featuring the Fowl Twins, brothers to the iconic Artemis Fowl.

Kiran Millwood Hargrave tells you about her critically acclaimed, award-winning novels, The Girl of Ink & Stars, The Island at the End of Everything and The Way Past Winter. And you may even get an exciting peek at the upcoming A Secret of Birds & Bone, out this autumn.

Ask Cressida, Kiran and Eoin your burning questions too – write them in the Questions box on the video player page.

This is a live event, with an author Q&A.
