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.
