Enjoy a reading of Karla Brading’s latest children’s book ‘The Valley of Whispers,’followed by writing exercises to help get the wheels in your head turning!
Having recently moved with his mother to a new area, Tomas is eager to settle down, make new friends and to explore. In an enchanting tale of innocence and discovery, he soon comes to realize that things aren’t quite what they seem in the village and that the past is more than just a distant memory.
Children can indulge in a ‘free writing exercise,’ in which Karla steadily unfolds writing prompts to spur your pen into motion. Practise ‘showing’ not ‘telling’ with sentences that can mean so much more than they are. And finish off with a written piece about your moment of fame – whatever it may be!
Recommended age: 10+
Living in South Wales, Karla has 28 tattoos so far, the majority of which are book related (the Cat in the Hat, Harry Potter, Count Olaf, The Baudelaire Orphans, Jemima Puddleduck, the Hungry Caterpillar etc).
