Children’s writer Heather Bradley, author of ‘When We All Get Together’, is set to visit Belfast Central Library next month for a special children’s storytime. 

Families with children age 4-8 are invited to come along on Saturday 23 September at 11:00am to be entertained with a tale from Heather’s new book ‘We Both Speak English but….’. The story centres around two cousins who live over 3000 miles apart who discover they enjoy many of the same things, but say them differently! When one cousin plays football, the other plays soccer. When one cousin jumps in puddles she wears a slicker, wellingtons and carries a brolly, when the other cousin plays in the rain she wears a raincoat, rubber boots and carries an umbrella!

Sian Cairns, District Officer with Libraries NI, is keen to encourage families visiting Belfast city centre on 23 September to come along and enjoy the FREE event.

“We are delighted to welcome Heather to Belfast Central Library and look forward to her amusing us with Canadian/Irish colloquialisms. As well as hearing some of the story, there will be an opportunity to speak with Heather afterwards and we know that children just love to meet real-life authors. This is a great opportunity to keep children entertained, especially if you’re heading into town to do some shopping. Please do come along, the event is FREE and there is no need to book, you can just drop-in.”

Canadian author Heather Bradley will be in Belfast Central Library at 11:00am on Saturday 23 September. This is a FREE event and all families with children age 4-8 are welcome to come along.  For more information telephone 028 9050 9150 or email
