Authors Live: Adrian Edmondson

We were delighted to be joined by the hilarious actor, author and comedian Adrian Edmondson in June 2018. Tune in to watch how to create your own sound time machine, and see Adrian and pupils travel back in time!

Adrian introduced his approach to writing, and then discussed his debut children's book, Tilly and the Time Machine. Adrian discussed memory as a time machine, and explored his own experience of grief and rememberance. In Tilly and the Time Machine, Tilly only wants to travel back to her sixth birthday when her mother was still alive. Tilly's story and Adrian's Authors Live event is a great way to introduce the topic of grief to your pupils in a touching and sensitive way. 

A full transcript of the event is available for download here.
