Bex Hogan will be reading her new children's book 'Bronte Tempestra and the Lightning Steeds,' for ages 7+. We will also be hosting a 'Make Your Own Firecat' crafts activity.

Writing her stories down was a natural progression and now she enjoys sharing her time between living in the real world and escaping to her imagination.
