About the event

The Story Museum is delighted to welcome back best-selling author Julia Donaldson in conversation about the craft of storytelling. This event is part of our adult series of events entitled ‘1001 Stories’ in which authors, artists, film-makers and others explore what makes a great story and which are the stories that The Story Museum should preserve for the future in its 1001 story collection.

Julia Donaldson is a writer, playwright and performer, best known for her popular children’s books including The Gruffalo, Room on the Broom and Stick Man. The Gruffalo has sold over 13.5 million copies worldwide and is currently touring as a very successful stage show. Julia was Children’s Laureate from 2011-2013 and featured in The Story Museum’s opening ’26 Characters’ exhibitions as the Owl and the Pussy Cat along with her husband Malcolm.

Please be aware – Julia will not be doing a signing after the event, but will be doing a special book signing session at 4pm in our café and shop. More information here.
