I am flattered and excited to have been asked to take part in the Northern Children’s Book Festival (NCBF) again this year.
As a proud Northerner it is always great to have an excuse to return up north, especially for the chance of visiting some brilliant schools.
The NCBF is a very special festival, in my opinion. It goes to huge efforts to get authors into schools that don’t normally get those kind of opportunities. This always guarantees the most amazing welcome from the most excitable kids around. It’s such a fun event to be part of and is organised and supported by the hard-working librarians in the area. I can’t wait to get involved next week.
