See you at the show, and fingers crossed it could be you!
Michael Morpurgo’s powerful new novel Listen to the Moon was in part inspired by the Lusitania Medal that used to be in his family. These medals were made by the British (but copied from the original German design) in 1916 as a propaganda tool to highlight the sinking of RMS Lusitania by a German U-boat – an event considered a war crime in 1915.
We have a genuine 1916 medal, in its original box and with its original propaganda leaflet, and you could win it in our competition, together with a copy of Listen to the Moon and a poster. Good luck!
Master-storyteller and bestselling author Michael Morpurgo will be joined by the outstanding English acappella trio Coope, Boyes & Simpson to perform Private Peaceful, a show based on his bestselling book, at Christ’s Hospital Theatre.
This year’s Shrewsbury Bookfest Remembers programme includes a performance of The Best Christmas Present in the World written and performed by Michael Morpurgo with Virginia McKenna and the singing group, ‘Voices at the Door’, directed by Simon Reade.
STORYSTOCK celebrates one of the world’s most successful writers with performance, workshops, tea parties and music all themed around his life and work.
