Don’t Ask the Dragon: Lemn Sissay & Greg Stobbs
Date/Time: Sunday 5 February 2023 10:00-10:45
Venue: Al Baraha I, InterContinental, Dubai Festival City
Session No: 53
Author Lemn Sissay and illustrator Greg Stobbs want to take you on an adventure. Join their hero Alem, who wants somewhere to celebrate his birthday – but where should he go? Maybe the bear, the fox, the tree frog or the bulldog know; but what about the dragon… Should Alem ask him, or might he be just too scary? A warm-hearted event is guaranteed, with fun and reassurance for both adults and children – plus party hats, interaction and some drawing!
Lemn Sissay OBE is a poet, playwright, memoirist performer and broadcaster who has read on stage throughout the world. He is chancellor of the University of Manchester. Don’t Ask the Dragon is his first children’s book.
Greg Stobbs is an illustrator, street artist and associate lecturer who likes to develop magical stories and worlds that cross the boundaries between fine art, street art and illustrations for children.
