Meet award-winning broadcaster, Radio X DJ, BAFTA-winning games voice artist, funny-man and bestselling children’s author, creator of the Hamish series, Danny Wallace to hear about his new book The Day the Screens Went Blank.

WHAT WOULD KIDS DO WITHOUT YOUTUBE VIDEOS? FACETIME? TIKTOK?! 

When ten-year-old Stella wakes up to discover a world full of BLANK screens, her family, town, and in fact the whole world seems to have been thrown into chaos. And what about poor Grandma who is stranded at the other end of the country?

Cue a rollicking madcap road trip, full of driving disasters and family fallouts, as they set off on a rescue mission. And along the way Stella and her family discover that being away from screens might not be the WORST THING EVER, and even though they might not be able to rely on technology anymore, they can rely on each other instead.

Hear all about this hilarious adventure and ask Danny your own questions.
