BIG will get the year off to a flying start with the wonderful, award-winning author/illustrator (and BIG member) Liz Pichon.

Liz Pichon had a successful career as a picture book author/illustrator before creating the Tom Gates series which has become a total smash. Selling 600,000 books in the UK alone, her books have been translated into 28 languages worldwide.

The first book in the series The Brilliant World of Tom Gates won the Roald Dahl Funny Prize, The Red House Book Award Best Book for Young Readers and the Waterstone's Best Fiction for 5-12 year olds Prize. The fourth book in the series Tom Gates; Genius Ideas Mostly won the Blue Peter Award for Best Story. In 2013, Liz Pichon was a World Book Day author with Tom Gates: Best Book Day Ever (So Far).

A fabulous opportunity to find out about children's fiction publishing, how Liz become a top-selling author, book events and promotion. There will be a Q&A with Liz. Absolutely not to be missed, All welcome.
