Takeover 2019 - Cressida Cowell, Children's Laureate
The magic of reading, diverse heroes and the importance of seeing yourself in a book, lost ancestors, funny words. Author Cressida Cowell guest edits.
Cressida Cowell says, "I will be talking about the thoroughly modern magic of reading and how that magic can and must be made accessible to absolutely everybody. Also I'll be talking exclusively to Woman's Hour about lost ancestors including an extraordinary but forgotten relative of mine, plus the vital importance of diverse authors and heroes for children, and funny words for the countryside, the words we are losing and our worrying disconnect with nature."
