I love to meet my readers and talk about my stories and illustrations. Throughout the year I visit primary and secondary schools, take part in library events and literary festivals for young people. Whether it’s a whole school assembly or a small class session, a fun pre-school visit or a more curriculum focused project; I adapt the session to suit. Children are excited to hear me read my books, watch me draw and have a go at creating their own characters and narratives. I enjoy signing books and always encourage venues to organise a signing as part of my visit. If you want to come see me at a literature festival or local library check out for my calendar of events to see where you can meet me next.

"IT WAS A DELIGHT TO GLIMPSE HANNAH IN ACTION AT THE MUSEUM DURING THE BOOK FESTIVAL. CHILDREN AND QUITE A FEW GROWN UPS WERE ENTHRALLED BY TALES OF STAN STINKY AND BEAR ON A BIKE, AND THEN ENJOYED MAKING THEIR OWN ILLUSTRATED CREATIONS INSPIRED BY HANNAH'S WONDERFUL CHARACTERS. HER ENTHUSIASM IS INFECTIOUS"

“IT IS ALWAYS A PLEASURE TO WORK WITH HANNAH IN SCHOOL. HER WORKSHOPS ARE INSPIRING AND EXCITING, OFFERING BOTH PRACTICAL WRITING AND ILLUSTRATION ADVICE FOR PUPILS AND THE OPPORTUNITY TO GAIN VALUABLE INSIGHTS INTO THE WORLD OF PUBLISHING.”
