Author Storytime: Finding Ray's Key

Pop along for a children's storytime session run by local author Sam Goddard and illustrator Owen Williams. This special event will include storytelling, book-signing and a chance to draw with the illustrator himself. 'Finding Ray’s Key’ is an illustrated rhyming story with a universal message that can be appreciated by all, young or old. The story’s young protagonist Ray (who often feels quite blue) wonders, ‘What is the key to being happy?’. He one day decides to go on a journey to find this key. The story is underpinned by Reiki and Mindfulness teaching - but you don't need to be familiar with this at all to enjoy the book. This event is part of Active Life Active Mind month.
