Next weekend is… FELIXSTOWE BOOK FESTIVAL!
I can’t wait!
I have bought a ticket to an event and plan on attending some of the free activities. I will attempt to fit in as much as I can.
I love that each year the festival gets bigger and the events get better. Here is a flashback at my posts on previous years to give you an idea of what to expect:
Alwyn Hamilton talked about her book Rebel of the Sands being traditionally published and gave great insight into the process and what to expect. She talked enthusiastically about her novel and gave some teasers of what is coming soon. I think everyone bought a copy.
Top That Publishing gave an amazing talk on the picture book publishing industry and truly demonstrated their breadth of knowledge. I still have my PowerPoint slides from the event.
Top That Publishing also ran a free Arty Mouse event which my son loved. Children were encouraged to try out their interactive activity books – I ended up buying two (review coming soon).
I am confident it will be another amazing year as there really is something for everyone and I promise to share with you what I get up to this year.
Are you going or wish you were going? Let me know which book festivals you recommend.
