Lincoln Book Festival – A Flash of Fireflies
**Please note that Aisha Bushby will be attending this event virtually and will be appearing on a screen due to contracting COVID. The Q&A will still go ahead**
Children’s Event with Aisha Bushby
Aisha’s magical book about family, friendship and finding your place, with a delicate touch of magic is perfect for 10-12 year olds. Hazel’s new life in England should have been the stuff of fairy tales but as she struggles to deal with the challenges of the everyday world (making friends, missing her family) she learns that every fairy tale has a dark side. And there are terrifying creatures that lurk in the shadows …
Aisha was born in Bahrain and now lives mainly in the worlds of children’s books. Her books have been shortlisted for many awards including the Carnegie, the Branford Boase and long-listed for the Waterstones prize.
