John Hughes performs for WHSmith Young Readers events

 

 

I just want to pass on my thanks to John for his wonderful storytelling sessions in Manchester for my WHSmith-funded Young Readers events in schools and in the Performance Space of Manchester Library...I'm sure families all over Manchester are puzzling about the riddles as we speak, and I just remembered the pupil in Old Hall Drive who, when it was said, "That was a very good response, young man - you would make an excellent storyteller one day" responded very genuinely "I'd love that!"
John kept all the children spellbound and engaged with his stories.
