Liz Fost Storyteller

Storytelling and Book Events

Book Events for Publishers

I specialise in creating and delivering book events for young children.

My storytelling sessions are interactive, keeping the audiences engaged and entertained the whole time.

After years of experience, I can take any book off the page and turn it into a fun, energetic story session.

I often use original songs or themed craft activities to add an extra element.
For example:

Elmer the Elephant:
      Elephant mask making
Kipper the Dog:
      Dog ears party hats decorating Moomins:
      Flower making and stone painting
Thunderbirds:
      Code-breaking  exercises
Aliens love Underpants:
      The Underpants Olympic Games

I have devised book events for many leading publishing companies:

Egmont , Macmillan, Random House, Harper Collins, Walker Books, Faber, Usborne, Oxford University Press

“There is no safer pair of hands than Liz. Her events are creative, brilliant fun and perfectly pitched. She is my first port of call for author-less events and I can’t recommend her more strongly.”

Jo Hardacre, Head of Publicity
Children’s department
Macmillan Publishers International Ltd

‘Liz brings infinite energy as well as years of experience to her storytelling. She has a wonderful ability to ensure that everyone in the room feels engaged and involved. We love that her performance can always be guaranteed. If she is talking to 30 children or 500 she always delivers and is a pure pleasure to watch.’

Gill McClay, Director 
Bath Children’s Literature Festival         

‘We’ve worked with Liz for a number of years now on various events, always to top-notch standards and on events which always entertain and engage children in our books and brands.”
