Michael Morpurgo

Online Family Event

We are very excited to announce that storyteller extraordinaire, Michael Morpurgo, will be joining us for our first ONLINE family event!

A longtime Mainstreet favourite, Michael will be joining us to talk about his new book, The Puffin Keeper, the event will also include a ‘draw-along’ section with illustrator, Benji Davis.

It was Benjamin Postlethwaite’s job all his long life to make sure the light shone brightly high up in the lighthouse on Puffin Island. Not once in all his years as the lighthouse keeper had he ever let his light go out. But sometimes even the brightest light on a lighthouse cannot save a ship.

This is a story of a life-changing friendship, a lost puffin, and a lonely artist. It’s the story of an entire lifetime, and how one event can change a life forever.  This truly beautiful tale will enchant readers of all ages.

There will be a Q&A towards the end of the event, please have lots of questions ready for Michael!
