About the Event
Join them as they talk about what it's like to re-imagine these worlds and how they have been inspired by classic stories and fairy tales.
Sibéal Pounder's Beyond Platform 13 returns to Eva Ibbotson's much-loved creations of mist, harpies and mistaken identities; Costa winner Hilary McKay has re-spun many traditional fairytales in Straw into Gold; Amy Wilson's writing is inspired by classic worlds and Robin Stevens' The Guggenheim Mystery is the sequel to Siobhan Dowd's The London Eye Mystery.
Both Amy and Robin have revisited Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland in their stories in the Return to Wonderland anthology.
The panel will be chaired by critic Nicolette Jones.
