Curated by Kids Takeover

Our team of junior curators put Writers Week children’s authors in the hot seat.



Book enthusiasts aged 10 – 12 have been working on curating their own Festival sessions. And on Sunday 25 February we let them loose in The Courtyard as they take over a stage and host their own Writers Week events. Join the Curated by Kids team as they flex their interviewing muscles to put some of the Writers Week children’s authors in the hot seat.

Purchase any books from the authors through Boffins and start reading today!
