Avid younger readers and lovers of all things gothic and vampire(y) are invited to a very special Meet the Author event with Stories Of Care Participant, Emmy Clarke, writer of Vampire Hunter Jess.
Inspired by her own personal experiences growing up autistic, Clarke’s protagonist Jess is also an autistic girl, who is determined to find proof that her neighbour is a vampire. At this special one-off event, Clarke, who turns 26 in September, will perform an animated reading of her story. Told through a mix of prose and unanswered text messages, it covers light LGBTQ+ themes, and explores grief, friendship, and found family.
It is also one of eleven brand-new original tales featured in Stories Of Care’s upcoming children’s anthology, Tales of the Brave, the Bold and the Beautiful.
The event will take place on Tuesday 17 May, 4pm, at Sale Library. Tickets are free but booking is essential. Tickets can be booked here.
Pride in Trafford runs from Tuesday 17 May until Saturday 21 May. Launching this year’s festival is the annual Flag Raising at Sale Town Hall at 11am on the Tue 17 May to coincide with and mark The International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia.
