Lori & Max with Catherine O'Flynn

Lori & Max with Catherine O'Flynn

This show was part of Solihull BookFest 20 which was regrettably cancelled due to Covid-19 Regulations. 

Every effort is being made to transfer the whole BookFest event over to 5th June 2021 but this will take some time to confirm. Once we re-open and BookFest organisers have completed their plans, we’ll check with them which shows will go ahead. 

In the meantime get reading, drawing, writing and creating!


Lori wants to be a detective, but so far the most exciting mystery she has solved is the disappearance of her nan's specs down the side of the sofa. But when new girl Max goes missing and the police don’t want to investigate, Lori finds she has a real crime on her hands.

A fast-paced adventure, told alternately by the two girls, Lori & Max is funny, sad and exciting and tackles relatable themes – unexpected friendships and not fitting in - as well as some serious social issues.

Catherine O’Flynn lives just down the road in Moseley and her first novel What Was Lost won the Costa First Novel prize. Lori & Max is her first children’s book.
