Words Words Words at Selfridges
February 3, 2012

Come and join Living Paintings & a selection of their wonderful supporters at Selfridges from the 11th to the 17th of February in their pop-up library.  Listen to readings from authors who have allowed us to adapt their books for our younger library members, enjoy a session with an illustrator who CAN make a giraffe dance and sit back whilst one of our script readers brings to life a book that has been enjoyed immensely by our borrowers.

Words Words Words:  ‘Celebrate the beauty of words, the joy of writing and the art of conversation at Selfridges. We create a place where people can come together through words, joined by writers-in-residence, captivating storytellers and surrounded by literary-inspired products. From world-changing quotes to whispered secrets, we all need words in our lives.’

Can’t wait for Saturday when Ross Collins does his reading. He’s one of my favourite children’s authors – fabulous illustrations and witty tales. What better way to start this inspirational series of readings. Well done Living Paintings.
