Beverley Naidoo telling the story of Cinderella of the Nile at Southbourne Library

My second special event last week took place on Saturday morning at Southbourne Library where I shared with a wonderfully cross-age audience my new Cinderella of the Nilesplendidly illustrated by Marjan Vafaeian and published by Tiny Owl. I dedicated my storytelling in memory of the late Connie Rothman, much-loved as a librarian in Southbourne, and also as a tribute to all our current librarians. I admire how valiantly they work to keep our libraries alive as welcoming places despite huge odds and the appalling cutbacks to our national treasure.

I shall meet Marjan for the first time in person next month at the Edinburgh International Book Festival where, with a Farsi-speaking translator, we shall present a couple of events, one for schools and one for the public. Another of Tiny Owl’s fabulous illustrators, Ehsan Abdollahi, who will also travel from Iran, has been appointed the Edinburgh International Book Festival’s illustrator-in-residence. How exciting is that?
