About the event

To launch our special Insects Through the Looking-Glass exhibition for National Insect Week, award winning author of ‘Beetle Boy’, MG Leonard, is back to read from the sensational third and final story in the trilogy, the exhilarating ‘Battle of the Beetles’.

M.G. Leonard was terrified of beetles until she started researching them for a book. She soon realised that these fascinating creatures, which support the eco-system of our entire planet, deserved to be the heroes, not the villains, of the story. So she set about writing the most compelling, funny and heart-warming adventure she could summon, about bravery, friendship and beetles.
Join us for this fabulous event full of wit, energy, stories and, of course, beetles!
