From abseiling into jungle caves to chasing the northern lights across the Arctic author Abi Elphinstone will be talking about the real-life adventures behind her books, The Dreamsnatcher series. She'll be showing a variety of exciting and unusual objects, think catapults, amulets and eagle huntress hats and showing children how easy it is to leap into stories of their own.
