Our Speaker

We are extremely fortunate to have children's and adult novelist Wendy White as our speaker, author of Mamgu’s Campervan and the Knights in Shining Armour, as well as Welsh Cakes and Custard, Three Cheers for Wales and St David’s Day is Cancelled.


Lorna Egan, Chair of the Tir na n-Og English-language Panel, said of Wendy: “She is a perceptive author who understands young children, and her book will educate and entertain youngsters and sharing adults. Text and visual elements work well together, and the joyous illustrations by Helen Flook, the inclusion of both a recipe and traditional song lyrics in Welsh and English, produce a gem of a book which is warm, funny and curriculum-friendly.”
