A LEADING author and illustrator is visiting Bradford libraries to inspire children.

Kate Pankhurst (pictured), is to give children the chance to meet and learn from an illustrator.

Kate will be taking children, from invited Bradford schools, on a highly illustrated, inspirational journey through the amazing achievements and adventures of some of the great women who have changed the world.

Bradford Libraries have been working with colleagues from 15 authorities to bring to the region the first ever Reading Pictures: Seeing Stories Festival.
