Award winning author Ali Sparkes, will be presenting her new children’s book ‘Thunderstruck’ along with showing the trailer for the new book on Saturday 17 June.
It is now a year since the launch of Cobbett Hub and Library and to celebrate this important milestone Ali Sparkes will be visiting to share her latest work. Ali grew up in Southampton and attended Bitterne Park School.
Ali said: ‘It’s always lovely to come back to the library where I first found my love of reading – and I’m really excited to be talking about my latest book, Thunderstruck – especially as it was inspired by a true Southampton story. There will, as ever, be cheesy sound effects along with stuff you never knew about lightning and a particularly disturbing section on dolls of the 60s, 70s and 80s…’
Tickets are available from Cobbett Hub and Library – suggested donations of £3 per ticket.
The Friends of Cobbett Road Library will be providing refreshments and talking to people about the changes at Cobbett Hub and Library over the past year.
