9th December

This Christmas, Kingston upon Thames launches the Kingston Children’s Literary Festival and invites children and parents alike to listen to some of their favourite festive and non-festive tales from a line up some of the UK’s best-loved children’s authors in the lead-up to Christmas.

Join A. Bello for a 30 minute reading from her book, Emily Knight…I am awakened.

Abiola Bello 'A. Bello' received rave reviews for her debut book, ‘Emily Knight I Am...’, as well as outstanding success with her Emily Knight Warriors pop-up book, which went viral in 2015. A young author from North London, she wrote her first novel at aged 8, where she fought monsters and dragons daily and was first published at aged 12 for a poem she wrote in school. A. Bello wrote the first in the Emily Knight saga at aged 12, with the intention of filling in a gaping hole in children's fiction for an inspirational, strong, black female protagonist (who can fight like a man!) ​

Recommended for ages 12 and up, this event is completely free of charge. The reading will be held at Kingston Children's Library.
