Patience Agbabi: Time travelling word-play
Leap into the world of Patience Agbabi's time-travel adventure stories, The Infinite and The Time Thief. In this event, Patience discusses the climate change themes that inspired The Infinite, world-building in science-fiction, and her love of wordplay.
Our learning resource What a waste: environmental activities(this will open in a new window) contains brilliant ideas for learning about sustainability in the classroom, and can be used alongside this event to further explore the climate change themes in The Infinite.
