Phil Earle

Hay Festival 2017, 

Phil Earle believes that stories surround us, every day and can come from anywhere.“We can find them in the classroom, in the school yard, in the newspaper,” he says. “Don’t wear your headphones on the bus and you’ll see that there is great drama in the everyday, waiting for you to write down.” Earle’s latest title, Mind the Gap, grew out of his constant search for possible stories. He offers a high-energy, interactive session that will enthuse the most reluctant of readers, and prove that we are all storytellers. As a child, Phil Earle wanted to be a professional footballer or a singer. He didn’t like reading fiction but he did like comics and he learnt to love books when he worked in a children’s bookshop.
