EVENT: #HowToBeMoreHedgehog LIVE with Author Anne-Marie Conway

What does it mean to ‘be more Hedgehog’? In the new book ‘How To Be More Hedgehog’ by Anne-Marie Conway, we find out just that.  

“Lily has a stammer. When a video of her practicing her class presentation is uploaded onto YouTube – head thrust forward, eyelids fluttering, lips stretched wide – Lily’s nightmare begins. Cyberbullying, kids at school whispering, even best friend Mia laughing behind her back. Lily’s confidence takes a nose-dive and she can only see one way out: run away to Dad in Scotland and start all over again. But Lily quickly realises that running away isn’t the answer – that her stammer will follow her wherever she goes.” 

This new book, published by uclan and described by Sir Michael Palin as “a compulsively readable story” is an ideal bedtime read for children who stammer. It’s a story of hope, resilience and importantly, it shows children who stammer that they are not alone. 

You are invited to join Action for Stammering Children, members of our Youth Panel and Author Anne-Marie Conway for a special evening of live readings, interactive discussion, Q&A and your chance to win one of four copies of the book.
