Exhibitions and Festivals etc.

 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.

I will be reading in a yurt and painting in a bookshop at the hall which does look to be so wonderfully full of exciting things, including deer and horses that the organisers will struggle to keep me seated. There are sand dunes and deer and seals and sea and beaches. All that and stories. Perfect for Easter. And there may even be hares. Happy to sign books and the shop with have plenty so do come.

On Monday I will be at the library, talking about words and pictures, my next book, the one with bears in, and maybe reading from The Wild Swans, which will be a look in to the future work.

Number Seven, Dulverton 14th May

Something very different at Number Seven, a walking book club. Do come if you can. Will be reading from East of the Sun, talking about the book and also reading from Wild Swans which will be published in 2015.

Number seven is a wonderful gem of a gallery and bookshop on the very edge of wild Exmoor

    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

      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.
