Birmingham centre

disabled access

M.G. Leonard is a writer of books, poems and screenplays. Beetle Boy, the story of a friendship between a boy and a beetle, was shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize, and longlisted for the Carnegie Greenaway Award and Branford Boase Award. The sequel, Beetle Queen, featuring the villainous Lucretia Cutter and her yellow ladybird spies, has just been published.

Join M.G.Leonard to hear more about the books, and her infectious enthusiasm for beetles. There will also be a very special opportunity to examine the Carlier Beetle Collection, one of best beetle collections in the country, developed by Birmingham entomologist Stuart Carlier in the early twentieth century, now held by the Birmingham Museums Trust.
