About

Join debut children’s author Jess Butterworth at the Althorp Literary Festival for an adventurous tale across the Himalayas. Running on the Roof of the World follows the extraordinary journey of 12-year-old Tash and her best friend Sam, as they seek the help of the Dalai Lama after Tash’s parents are seized by Chinese soldiers.

Jess will share photos and artifacts from her time in Tibet, from yak bells to prayer wheels, giving a fascinating insight into the setting which inspired her book. She’ll touch on the political background to her story, and read an extract before answering questions.
