Come along to this lovely storytelling and craft event where author Julia Patton will read her new book Number 7 Evergreen Street, she'll be bringing a long roll of paper for you to create your own garden with coloured pencils and crayons - so everyone can contribute all at once. 

Pea lives in a flat at Number 7 Evergreen Street. It's a grey building in a grey street, in a grey city. Inside the building, however, it's not grey at all. Pea and her parents have lots of amazing, colourful neighbours.
One day, an army of construction workers turn up on the street and start putting up brand new buildings. When it looks like Number 7 Evergreen Street is going to be demolished, Pea has to think quickly to save her home.

A special book that explores the value of communities and nature.
