Seven Stories celebrates 10th anniversary

Newcastle’s Seven Stories – the first museum in the country dedicated to children’s books – will today (19th August) celebrate its 10th anniversary.

The museum, which added “national” to its title in 2102 to become the National Centre for Children’s Books, hosts changing programme of exhibitions about children’s literature - the current focus is Michael Foreman - and is a passionate campaigner for recognition of the importance of children’s literature.

It also hosts an archive of materials relating to children’s books and a large bookshop and in its time has hosted bestselling authors such as David Almond, Jacqueline Wilson and Judith Kerr.
