Michael Morpurgo at the Chiswick Book Festival


At the Chiswick Book Festival in September, Michael Morpurgo told his audience how his classic novel, Warhorse, became a hit play and a major film directed by Steven Spielberg.

He also spoke about the other protagonists of his latest books – Shadow, about the bravest dog in the world, and Little Manfred, about a wooden dachshund in the Imperial War Museum.

The talk was followed by Young People’s Poetry Competition Prize-Giving by Chiswick Book Festival Director Torin Douglas.
