Villains & Grannies | Dunedin Writers & Readers Festival

9 May 2019 3:30pm — 4:30pm

What happens when you throw villains and grannies together? And are they mutually exclusive? We’ll find out when Eric Veillé (author of Encyclopedia of Grannies) meets up with Clotilde Perrin (author of Inside the Villains) for a storytelling/drawing session. Veillé’s charmingly quirky book about grandmas answers vital questions about hot topics like hairstyles, face creases, flexibility, hearing and knitting; Perrin’s book, meanwhile, takes a peek (literally, with lift-the- flap cleverness) inside three fairytale villains: the wolf, the giant and the witch. Don’t miss this chance to see two of the world’s brightest picture book talents. Suitable for all ages. Grandmas very welcome (villains, not so much).

A Les Petits Kiwis event, with thanks to Embassy of France, Alliance Française, Institut Français and Gecko Press.

Please note that space is limited so admission cannot be guaranteed.
