Gather in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse to celebrate Speak Up! – the latest empowering and heart-warming book from award-winning duo author Nathan Bryon and illustrator Dapo Adeola. Part of our new family event series Telling Tales.

Speak Up! is the latest story featuring the loveable Rocket. In this adventure, she is organising a peaceful protest to save her local library, and to help save the day.

Join Nathan and Dapo to find out more about the book, and take part in a quiz and interactive draw-along!

You’ll find out more about how Nathan and Dapo started creating books and illustrations, and how their work and experiences influence what they choose to write about. You’ll also have the chance to ask them your questions in a Q&A session.
