Q&As at the BFI and ES ‘Stories’ Festival

It was great to be asked three Q&As at the BFI Southbank as part of the Saint Etienne films season in early September 2021. I spoke to Bob Stanley, Pete Wiggs, Paul Kelly, Travis Elborough and Lawrence about some fo the films that were showing. It was fairly incredible just to be in a cinema, with people, after all this time. The photo below shows some seats, some heads and a tiny me, Lawrence and director Paul Kelly on stage. (Thanks to Matt for the picture.)

I also hosted Q&As for the Evening Standard/Netflix Stories Festival on September 2021 with the wonderful authors Holly Smale, Elle McNicoll and Abigail Balfe at Picturehouse Central. The title was Young, Gifted and Geeky – and each author champions neurodiverse voices in kids literature. It was absolutely fascinating and I was thrilled to be invited to chair. Details here.
