Imagine making friends with a polar bear or a grey whale! Hannah Gold’s novels feature unforgettable adventures which celebrate the love between a child and an animal and show that no one is too young or insignificant to make a difference. In her interactive workshop she shares how she created the beloved characters April and Bear from her international bestseller The Last Bear, and introduces her new novel The Lost Whale. She’ll showcase the stunning artwork from award-winning illustrator Levi Pinfold, the real life images which inspired her books and test your knowledge in her wild animals quiz too!
Hannah Gold studied screenwriting at university and worked in the London film and theatre industries before taking time out to pursue her dream of writing and share her passion for protecting our planet. Her first book, The Last Bear, was the biggest selling debut hardback of 2021, and won the 2022 Blue Peter Book Award and the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize as well as being nominated for numerous awards including the Carnegie Medal.
