Gosforth Book Festival and Beyond!

Gosforth Book Festival Poster

I'm looking forward to heading out on the road again for a number of events up and down the country—stopping off in Cambridge, Newcastle, Corby, Wellingborough and London. 

On Saturday (17th October) I'll be taking part in the Gosforth Community Book Festival. The event runs from 10am to 3pm, and is being hosted by Newcastle School for Boys in Gosforth, NE3. 

As well as a great line up of authors giving talks and book signings, there will be arts and crafts activities, Flowing Tales creative writing workshops, plus the chance to purchase books from the Seven Stories book shop, and—most important of all—a cafe running throughout the day! 

All events are OPEN TO THE PUBLIC and Admission is FREE! So, if you're in the area, please come along—it would be great to see you!

Here's a quick outline of the programme of events:

Lunchboox Reading Group Goes Wild!

This bundle of Charlie Merrick style Go!Wild profiles from the LUNCHBOOX Reading Group at St. Christopher's School in Oxford really made my day. 

Great work guys—thanks very much!

I'll get my answers to your questions back to you as quickly as I can. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy finding out how Charlie and the gang cope with surviving all alone in the wild!

Best wishes, Dave
