Keep an eye on this page to keep up-to-date with events where you can meet Josie.

Part of the fun of being a children’s author is getting to meet young readers and their families.  Josie is available for author visits in bookshops and schools.  The visits are great fun for all involved.  As well as reading her stories to the children, Josie gets the children involved in art and craft activities based around one of her stories.  There might even be a treasure hunt with sticker prizes!

“Kept children interested all the way through.”

Chelmsford Library have invited 6 children’s authors to their inaugural Essex Children’s Author Day, and you are invited too!

Join the authors for fun story and craft sessions including Lum and Lum’s Mum with Josie Dom.  Josie will also be on hand to answer your questions and help you to create Lum houses and ink monsters!

Other authors also part of this day are Susie Violet, Marcia Mason, Grant Strong, Jonkers and Lin Franklin.

Josie will be at Made & Found, a fabulous new cafe on Scheregate Steps in Colchester on 22nd and 29th August.
