A fun event celebrating the geek will feature as part of this year’s Hertford Children’s Book Festival.

Fans of author Holly Smale will get the chance to meet the award-winning Geek Girl creator at Hertford Theatre on Sunday when the Herts-born writer will discuss her popular series in an event hosted by 12-year-old Georgia Sutcliffe.

Festival favourite Holly will talk about her heroine Harriet Manners – and her own madcap path to becoming an author.

The event starts at 11.30am and tickets cost just £5. Find out more at www.hertfordchildrensbookfestival.co.uk.
