Wokingham’s 2nd annual Children's Book Festival on October 19th and 20th will be a fabulous chance for the children of Wokingham to meet authors and illustrators who will bring stories to life through fun, interactive workshops.

Interactive workshops will be run in Wokingham Library and Wokingham Town Hall to show children how they can create and conjure up characters and plots that make them shake with excitement, amaze their parents and teachers, but most of all have them all bursting with pride.
