This has to be the best name for a book festival ever! Which means if you're anywhere near Chester next week, you have to check it out. There's a whole host of events running all through half-term week, including author appearances from Steve Hartley, Harriet Goodwin, Jon Mayhew and Sarwat Chadda among others. Full details here. For those in the south, there is a great day of book related workshops at the Crystal Palace Children's Book Festival tomorrow (Oct 23rd). Then on Friday 29th, The Chainsaw Gang will be rampaging to the Norwich Forum to discuss horror and young adult fiction. Just sorry I won't be able to make it. I'll be heading off to the Welsh mountains to work on some edits and continue my search for the ultimate Bara Brith. Have fun.
