 Torquay Museum: an exhibition of dragons. 9th March- sometime in June

For the first time ever most of the artwork from Tell Me a Dragon has been gathered together in one place. Combined with beautiful things from the museum’s collection this exhibition shines. Signed books are available from the shop and I will be attending a closing event just before the show end. BEWARE the gallery has curious opening hours. School visits are welcome.

The exhibition will be moving to Hornsey Library at the end of June and is available on request for libraries, galleries, museums. Contact me to request the show.

Painting and talking in this wonderful indie bookshop full of so many delights ( and jigsaws) at the start of the Briton Festival. Should be a busy day. Will be signing and dedicating books while I wait for paint to dry and the painting will be auctioned to raise money for a charity of the bookshop owners choice.

 

Hornsey Library 8th July, 6.30-8.30

Meet the Dragons.

The exhibition of dragons from Tell Me a Dragon will have flown from Torquay Museum to Hornsey Library, so on 8th in the evening there will be a ‘Meet the Dragons’ ( I mean, artist, sorry) event. Do come. Hoping to have objects from the local museum collection on show too, and this will be part of the launch for the Summer Reading Challenge. Tell Me a Dragon is one of the chosen books.

On show will be most of the work from Tell Me a Dragon and the early inspiration for it as well as one of the covers for Robin Hobb’s books.

Bring friends.

    Hi Jackie,

    Please could you tell me if you ever do any work shops if so when, where, the cost and what age range do you take ? We live in Burford Oxfordshire.
    Kind regards Amanda

    • Jackie says:

      I do all kinds of things to promote my books, Amanda, here and there and everywhere. But I don’t do specific workshops really. I am too busy writing and painting and reading. The best way to know when I am around the area is to keep an eye on this page.

    Hello Jackie,

    My children and I love your work and I have to read “The snow leopard” regularly to my son to get him off to sleep. Thank you for that, and my little girl has been introduced to dragons in a very beautiful way, unfortunately she wants me to paint an ice dragon on her wall now!

    I was hoping that you could tell me if you have any prints of Pegasus with the poem on for sale at all ?(from the Barefoot book of poems) It would be perfect for my little sister and is absolutely beautiful.

    Thank you
    Amyx

    Hello Jackie,
    Do you have any work currently being exhibited in Pembrokeshire ? I will home in Pembs next month and would like to see more of your work; last time we found a hare portrait in Milford Haven Docks. By the way, you have many fans here in Brittany.

  10. Hi Jackie

We would love to have you at the festival even without a new book, as all your books are fabulous! I have 2 indie bookshops in Cumbria- Bookends Carlisle and Keswick. I can send you further info on the festival by email if you would like to know more. Look forward to hearing from you, Regards, Gwenda

    • Jackie says:

      Would have loved to have come but I have to tie up my travel with lots of events and won’t be up that way then. Can I let you know when I am? I have worked with the Hedgehog bookshop in Penrith and LOVE the Lake District. Keep me in mind for next year as could build my travelling around you. Meanwhile my email address is jackie@jackiemorris.co.uk Email me!

    Dear Jackie,
    We have not met as yet but I am a Facebook friend who lives in Glasgow. I come to St.David’s twice a year ( since 1977). I am a cat-lover par excellence! When you come to Edinburgh this Aug. -is it to the Book Festival? I am a very regular attender there & to other parts of the Festival. Can I assist you in any way with your arrangements to be in Edinburgh? I really DO mean ” any way” – as I admire your work & your wonderful communications on FB very much. With best wishes, Helen Anthony.

    • Jackie says:

      Hi Helen, Yes it is the festival. I’m doing two events but apparently am not supposed to talk about them in public yet until they are in the program.I’ll email you. And thanks.
