Shout About Books
Had a great two days in Lancashire doing four Reads United events with Helena Pielichaty, author of the Girls FC series. It was part of their Shout About Books festival.
Lancashire Libraries are great. They deliver their book prizes and this amazing festival, as well as an annual county read promotion. And Lancashire is a BIG county. Almost as big as next door Yorkshire!
They sorted out great theatre venues, a bookshop (along with book buyers!) and four lots of 200 children. The children had all been visited by librarians in advance, so that they could tell them about our books and show them our websites. They also looked after us brilliantly with lifts and lunches,etc. And it ran like clockwork.
And the library is running a really good football fiction promotion, which you can read about in my blog on www.literacytrust.org.uk
In all it was a great couple of days. Thank you Shout About Books!
