We’re hugely pleased to welcome Bath writer Maudie Smith. Her extremely successful debut novel for children, Opal Moonbaby, delighted young readers with its alien main character and tales of friendship, adventure and everyday life told through the eyes of Martha and her brother Robbie. This evening she will talk about and read from her brilliant sequel, About Zooming Time, Opal Moonbaby!. The alien who came to stay is back and this time she’s spending a year on Earth, going to school, making new friends and causing havoc.
Maudie Smith was formerly an actor, playwright and children’s theatre worker. She recently graduated from the MA in Writing for Young People at Bath Spa.
