Join Chetham’s Library and local publisher Seven Arches Publishing to celebrate ‘Time Traveller Atlanta Tully’, the third in the Time Traveller series for readers in the 8 -12-year-old age range.
Atlanta Tully, who is eleven years old, is from a multi-racial family living in Moss Side and is exceptionally talented musically so wins a place at Chetham’s School of Music. However, before she starts her education at the music school, she is approached by a mysterious organisation that asks her to go back in time for them – the plot thickens…
Atlanta adventures back in time to 1613 as a boy working for the priests at the College. In the story, Humphrey Chetham had arrived at the College to talk to the warden about the possibly of acquiring the College, but the Kings cavalry arrive to arrest him for not supporting King Charles. Atlanta helps him escape and ‘inspires’ Humphrey Chetham to leave money in his will to provide a school for 40 poor boys.
Please note that this talk will be premiered on Youtube, so no booking is required. You can view the event on this link, or below.
