The Mab - Schools + Darren Chetty Chat (a chet-chat?)
I hope you're having a good week. I just wanted to keep you updated on the latest developments.
The Mab is all about helping new generations of kids (and adults) to find and fall in love with the ancient, beautiful, thrilling, weird stories of the Mabinogion. So, this week, we created and launched four different School Reward Levels at four different prices, which will give schools the opportunity to get copies of The Mab plus author visits, or online workshops from some of our authors, or downloadable teaching resources.

Perhaps you could get in touch with your kids', or grandkids', school and let them know about how they can get involved with these incredible stories.
So, with schools on our minds, I thought I'd have a chat with one of our amazing writers, Darren Chetty, who used to be a teacher. We nattered about when he first found the Mabinogion, how British myths often get overlooked, and why children need to see themselves in the stories they read. I hope you enjoy listening. Please share and have an amazing week.
