reading is magic festival

I’ve got great news for any Detective Society members sad to be missing me at this year’s Bath Children’s Literature Festival – although I won’t be able to be there in person, the festival is going online this year, and I’m part of it!

The Reading is Magic Festival launched its programme last week, and I’m thrilled to be part of its brilliant line-up, doing a panel with two of my detective author friends Sharna Jackson and Serena Patel! We’re chaired by Katherine Woodfine – and you can watch our event for free on the 30th September at 1:30pm.

Visit the website now to find out more and to see who else will be appearing – it’s an amazing list of authors and illustrators, and I hope it helps brighten up your autumn!

For the rest of September, your prompt will be resolutions. This was suggested by Detective Society member Neve – and it seems like a great choice, since this is the beginning of the school year, a time full of new challenges and big decisions.
I’ve got good news for Scottish fans – I may not be able to come visit you in person this autumn, but I’ll be able to be with you virtually! I’m teaming up with the Scottish Friendly Children’s Book Tour and Book Week Scotland for a week of absolutely FREE events for Scottish schools.
