Rogan’s Books presents The Fire Maker

Bedford based Rogan’s Books is excited to be welcoming Guy Jones, bestselling author of The Ice Garden next month on Friday 21 June.

Following his sparkling debut, Guy Jones introduces a new magical-realist world in The Fire Maker.  The story is told from the point of view of young Alex who loves magic – its glamour, tricks and illusions. But when he stumbles into strange Mr Olmos’s back garden, he sees a kind of magic he can’t explain: three tiny flames floating in the air. Soon, Alex and Mr Olmos are swept up in a great adventure of secrets, genies and an ancient, bitter rivalry…

Rogan’s Books will be facilitating school visits with Guy, suitable for KS2. If you would like to host Guy for a session on 21st June (morning or afternoon), please email Rogan’s Books with details of pupil numbers in Years 4-6 (ages 8-11).

Rogan’s Books work with schools across Bedfordshire, hosting events and activities designed to inspire a love of reading. They bring the UK’s leading names in children’s fiction to Bedfordshire’ schools, as well as offering a full bookselling service, giving your pupils the lasting memory of a signed book.

Schools can select one of two options: these events are delivered free of charge for a minimum book order of £175. Alternatively, schools can source the books themselves – in this case, an arrangement fee of £175 is charged.
