Chris Riddell at Hay Festival

THE HAY LIBRARY LECTURE: THE LAUREATE’S GOODBYE " " " "This will be Chris Riddell’s final public event as UK Children’s Laureate. On his appointment, he promised to show everyone how much fun they could have with a pencil, and today he will demonstrate this by live-drawing his answers to questions. Chris will pick his favourite questions to illustrate and give an insight into his world and the journey he has been on over the last two years as Laureate. The lucky questioners he picks can take their doodle-answers home as a unique piece of art from one of our greatest illustrators.
