Oliver Jeffers & Sam Winston

An evening of creative adventure and literary make-believe

We are very fortunate to be hosting an evening event during which these two talented artists will discuss their own flights of imagination and the process by which they then harness their ideas onto the page (we can barely contain our excitement!).

Anyone who visits Mainstreet on a regular basis (or after a long car journey) will know we have created in the loo a homage to Oliver Jeffers. We have loved his work for years and each new book reveals a new depth to his talent.

His latest collaboration is with typography artist Sam Winston and the result, A Child of Books, is a gorgeous ode to storytelling in which two children navigate a landscape created from extracts of classic children’s books. Together they explore the furthest reaches of imagination. It is quite simply delicious.
