Lydia Syson in Conversation with Michael Rosen: Writing the Spanish Civil War for Children

As part of this year’s Arts Week at Birkbeck, we were lucky enough to see the wonderful Lydia Syson, Jessamy Harvey and Michael Rosen speak on writing about the Spanish Civil War for children.

Hearing Lydia and Michael read from A World Between Us (it’s out in October, grab a copy as it’s SO GOOD!) was fantastic –  this was our first author event of sorts and what a great way to start! Lydia also spoke about how her family history (which is totally fascinating) inspired her research towards the books, and even gave a sneak hint towards what is coming up in the future…

But why take my word from it when can listen yourself?! Thanks to the wonder of the flip cam, we were able to record the event – take a sneak peek below!


A massive thanks to Birkbeck for allowing us to film the event, it was a fantastic evening!
