Here's the official poster for this sure-to-be-exciting writer-illustrator-led event, organised by the remarkable Alex Milway . Garen Ewing drew the dinosaur on the mast, based on one of our local dinosaurs, which are really quite famous and why haven't I been to see them yet? Probably because Crystal Palace is uphill on my bicycle and I am very lazy. (Note to self: that is a very poor excuse.) www.palacefestival.org Remarkable fact I learned from Alex the other day; Darwin's ten-year-old daughter Annie died in Alex's grandmother's house. This is the same grandmother whom Edward Elgar used to bounce on his knee, that woman knew people.
