Abi Elphinstone – Rumblestar

Nancy Knowles Lecture Theatre


Become a Member to access priority booking and a range of additional benefits.


From chasing the northern lights across the Arctic to living with the Kazakh Eagle Hunters in Mongolia, author Abi Elphinstone will be talking about the real-life adventures behind her books as well as the accidental daydreams that sparked her brand new series, The Unmapped Chronicles.

She’ll be revealing a variety of exciting and unusual objects linked to her characters – think catapults, wolf fangs and eagle huntress hats – and showing children just how easy it is to find magic in their everyday lives and turn it into stories of their own.

Recommended for: Ages 7+
