Where Your Wings Were: Journeys with David Almond at Seven Stories

About

Brand new exhibition from Seven Stories, The National Centre for Children's Books explores the beautifully mysterious world of award-winning author, David Almond. This major retrospective exhibition of Almond's work explores the landscapes, language and people of Tyneside inspired his many stories.

Embark on a journey through Tyneside like never before, discovering how its landscapes, language and people inspired the magical stories of David Almond.

Delve into the writer’s dreamlike world where tales such as Skellig and My Dad’s a Birdman took root. Bringing to life Almond’s archive (which is housed at Seven Stories' Felling-based archive), the exhibition explores themes of love, loss and hope though characters real and imagined. Meet angels and devils, question what it means to be human and experience the North East through the eyes of one of its most creative sons. 

A Great Exhibition of the North associated event.

Exhibition suitable for children aged 7+ and their families.
