I'm doing three events at the Hay Festival this year! And one of them is with two of my all-time favourite writers, Geraldine McCaughrean and Candy Gourlay. Here's a video Candy just made! And you can read about our event in Candy's festival blog post here.

My event with Anne Cottringer (writer of our book When Titus Took the Train) is already sold out, but you can still book tickets for these events:

Geraldine McCaughrean & Candy Gourlay: Monday 30 May 2011, 4pm
