Were you a member of The Famous Five Club? Did you dream of adventures with the Secret Seven and escaping into strange and enchanted worlds at the top of The Magic Faraway Tree? Join Kate Edwards and Alison Gwynn from Seven Stories, National Centre for Children’s Books for a discussion exploring the Enid Blyton phenomenon, discovering how she developed a love of reading across generations and what her stories mean to children today.

Seven Stories is the custodian of a unique Enid Blyton Collection of original typescripts and illustrations. All of the material purchased by Seven Stories in 2010 came from the estate of Gillian Baverstock, Blyton’s elder daughter. Despite Enid Blyton’s huge output and immense popularity, there is no other substantial archive of her work in a public institution anywhere in the UK.
