New Lanark Book Festival

About New Lanark Book Festival

Come along for the wonderful opportunity to meet and chat with award-winning children's authors Chae Strathie & Keith Charters in interactive and engaging sessions.

Chae Strathie is the author of many funny fabulous and whimsical stories like ‘Jumblebum’, the ‘Fabulous Flapdoodles and T-Rex on Tour’, ‘What if you had a dinosaur as a penpal?’ and ‘What was it like to be a kid in ancient Egypt?’ Chae’s books are recommended for age 4-7 year olds.

Keith Charters will also be at New Lanark on the 14th September, when you can meet the character of his books ‘Lee’ and his family on their hilarious adventures. What would you do if there were Consul Mutants taking over the world or you were the first kid in space? Keith’s books are recommended for age 8-12 year olds.

For only £5 per child, children can be transported into the magical world of literature with Scotland's best children's authors at New Lanark.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for New Lanark Book Festival are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
