Tom Palmer – Armistice Runner
Lily has lots of worries. She’s struggling to compete in her fell-running races and, worse, she’s losing her gran to Alzheimer’s. But then she discovers her great-great-grandfather’s diaries from the First World War. Could his incredible story of bravery help her reconnect with her gran and even give her the inspiration she needs to push through and win?

Matt Dickinson – The Everest Files
In the deepest Himalaya a story is spreading like wildfire. The story of an Everest expedition unlike any other. An expedition that ended with mysterious disappearances … and death. This is the mystery that 18-year-old Ryan Hart sets out to solve. What emerges is a shocking tale of lies, betrayal and obsession… All played out on the lethal slopes of the highest mountain in the world.

These fantastic Children’s Literature events are part of the 2018 Kendal Mountain Literature Festival, which takes place during the famous Kendal Mountain Festival between Friday 16th and Sunday 18th November.
