500 excited students plus teachers / librarians and authors all assembled for the annual Bookfeast last week and, as always, a wonderful time was had by all. Bookfeast is organised by Michael Fraser and his team and this year there was a change of venue, with Cabravale Diggers hosting the lunch. This year I sat at a table with students from Bosley Park and their teachers and, if I can work out how to do it, I shall put one of the great photos they took up on my blog along with this post. Bookfeast is always a great chance for authors to talk to students, and for students to ask questions about books and about writing, and I was very impressed by the students’ interest and their thoughtful questions. As well as having lunch, we listened to a couple of authors talking about their work, including Sandy Fussell who gave an amusing insight into how she went about researching a one-legged warrior for her novel Samurai Kid. Congratulations to Michael and his team on another successful Bookfeast, and my thanks to the students and teachers of Bosley Park for making the day so pleasurable. You were great!!
