Friday 27th October 2023, 17:00 – 20:00 BST
Location: Online
Tickets: Free – register your place today at eventbrite

Once again, Children & Authors’ Literary Fanfare (CALFE) 2023 will be presenting: Readings, storytelling, poetry, music and creatively engaging activities, from children’s authors of culturally diverse heritage, and from countries across the globe!

Titled Wonder Books & Magical Reads, it promises to be interactive, fast-paced and highly-engaging!

For ages 4-11year olds.

The aim is to get younger generations hooked on books, that serve as mirrors, windows, and doors, equipping them to confidently embrace their uniquely-innate abilities. We understand how such support is crucial to growing up with a positive image, as boosting their self esteem, is key to achieving their full potential.
