Huw Powell is the children’s author of the Spacejackers novels, which have been published by Bloomsbury and W F Howes in the UK, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. The first Spacejackers novel was Literature Work’s ‘Book of the Month’ and short-listed for Teach Primary’s ‘New Children’s Fiction Award’. His books have been described as Star Wars meets Pirates of the Caribbean, with reviewers calling them “explosive”, “action-packed” and “tremendous fun.” Huw is an active supporter of initiatives that encourage children to read. He lives with his wife and two sons in Portishead.
Huw delivers a fun and engaging event for children aged 7 upwards, which includes an interactive talk about his writing and influences, as well as the importance of books. The event also includes readings from his books, a drawing (using ideas from the children), a mini-quiz and Q&A. There will be an opportunity to purchase books for Huw to sign at the end.
