The Crystal Palace Children's Book Festival is back in action
It’s been touch and go as to whether I’d run a festival this year, what with serious book deadlines and a very real new baby to look after, but now that I’m a bit more settled it’s been decided that I’d be stupid not to do it all again. Unlike last year’s festival, though, we’re moving the date to October (we almost have the weekend set – I’ll post a date as soon as I can!).
There are many reasons for this, but the big one is that it gives me more time to make it as good as can be. Last year’s was so successful that we’ll keep the format much the same, and simply do it better. So there’ll be a day of workshops, author readings/signings and a great illustration/comic exhibition. And it will all be in aid of children’s books and comics.
It’s exciting to have it all back on the road again!
