Children’s Fiction Event: Twister by Juliette Forrest
October 4, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pmFree – £8.99
Golden Hare Books welcomes Juliette Forrest with her fantastic novel Twister for ages 9+. Come along chat about magic, heroines, and mystery! This brilliant interactive event will appeal to children and grown-ups alike.
When magic whirls, danger creeps closer.
She’s curious – she’s courageous – she’s a riddle – she’s a rebel – she’s Twister.
This is the story of a brave, bright girl; a witch who lives in the woods; a necklace that turns you into a wolf, a thunderstorm or a rainforest; and a spine-chilling villain who will stop at nothing to seize it.
There is magic and danger in this story, adventure and thrills to be found. Follow Twister inside, if you dare.
Juliette Forrest left Scotland for the bright lights of London where she trained as an art director and worked in the creative departments of advertising agencies, winning awards for her TV, radio, press and poster campaigns. Wanting a life of adventure, she packed her bags and travelled around the world, where she stayed with the Karen people in Thailand, dived the Great Barrier Reef, explored Malaysian jungles, visited the Po Lin Monastery on Lantau Island in Hong Kong and hared across America on the Greyhound Bus. Winning a New Writers Award from the Scottish Book Trust gave Juliette the support she needed to complete her first novel Twister, which was snapped up by Scholastic and published in February 2018. Juliette lives in Glasgow and is at her happiest exploring the great outdoors with her rescue dog – even though she has a sneaking suspicion he is the one taking her for a walk.
