Ever heard something go bump in the night? Thought you saw something – or someone – that wasn’t there? Then don’t miss this seriously creepy event with Dave Shelton and Jonathan Stroud, authors of some of the best ghost books around. 

Shelton’s Thirteen Chairs is a collection of properly scary ghost stories. He is also author of A Boy and a Bear in a Boat, winner of the Branford Boase Award for most outstanding debut novel for children. Stroud’s Lockwood and Co. adventures describe a Britain where wandering ghosts offer a constant threat – especially after dark. Join them for readings, ghost stories and discussion – if you dare!

Discussions are chaired by author and journalist Amanda Mitchison.
