In this event for our Whiteboard Programme, Pádraig Kenny introduces his new novel The Monsters of Rookhaven and talks about monsters and why they frighten us so much. Pádraig will ask what monsters are, and what frightens you, and why we like scary stories. He reads a short extract and talks about what inspires him as a fantasy writer – and some tips for your own writing.
Pádraig Kenny is an Irish writer from Newbridge, County Kildare. His critically acclaimed children’s books TIN (2018) and POG (2019) were nominated for several major literary awards. The Monsters of Rookhaven was published by Pan McMillan in 2020.
