BookTastic Children's Book Festival presents

Philip Reeve: The Worlds of Mortal Engines and Railhead

Saturday 6th July, 2.15pm

Explore far-future civilisations and adventures with author Philip Reeve.

Philip will talk about his work developing both the Mortal Engines and Railhead Series:

Mortal Engines covers nearly 20 years of a far-future age, The Traction Era, when cities roam the world hunting for smaller towns to dismantle for their raw-materials.

Zen Starling rides the rails and his luck across a place of many dangers in Railhead. Explore this adventure novel set in a future civilization of many worlds, all linked by a hyperspace railway.

This event will focus on Philip’s work for older children and teenagers. Under 16’s must be accompanied by an adult, with an additional ticket required for the adult.
