We are thrilled to welcome a true legend of children’s books to our festival. Judith Kerr is author and illustrator of the landmark picture book, A Tiger Who Came to Tea, along with many other award winning children’s books including Mog the Forgetful Cat and When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit. Judith will be in conversation with her lifelong editor and designer, Ian Craig.

Judith Kerr was born on 14 June 1923 in Berlin but escaped from Hitler’s Germany with her parents and brother in 1933 when she was nine years old. Judith went to eleven different schools, worked in the Red Cross during the war, and won a scholarship to the Central School of Arts and Crafts in 1945.

Since then she has worked as an artist, a BBC television scriptwriter and, for the past thirty years, as author and illustrator of children’s books.

There will not be a signing after this event but there will be a chance to ask Judith questions during the talk. Signed editions will be available at our pop up bookshop in the Pavilion Theatre.
