As part of Leeds Libraries BBC Novels programme join Liz Cable to find out how to make an escape room adaptation of a book.

At this hands-on workshop you’ll learn how to take inspiration from a book to create an escape room that will be instantly recognisable to it’s readers, whilst introducing newcomers to the story-world without spoilers. We’ll cover setting, narrative and puzzle-design.
