Do you live in or near Birmingham? Then let me tell you about the fab Birmingham Young Reader's Festival coming up soon...
There's an opening event this Saturday, May 22nd at 2pm with the outragiously beardy Philip Ardagh, then a week of schools events (in 42 different libraries across the city) will lead up to the fabulous Book Bash weekend on Sun 30th and Mon 31st May.
There will be no less than 6 marquees set up in the grounds of Aston Hall, with continual events in each, featuring authors, illustrators, poets and storytellers. I will be strutting my stuff on the Monday, so come along and see me!
Tickets are really cheap. You can get them, or more information, by calling 0121 303 2323 or by visiting Birmingham Box Office. See you there!
