Mountains to Sea Festival

Hello and welcome to August. I know we're all frantically trying to make the most of this last month of summer. Getting away while we can... making sure everybody has what they need for the start of school in September, cramming as much holiday in to see us through the upcoming autumn.
But I thought I'd start by giving you all a heads up on the upcoming Mountains to Sea Festival, which begins September 1st.
The Mountains to Sea Festival is a fantastic opportunity for us to get involved in all the current literary treats available. And, of course the young people among us are never left out. This year's programme for the family is fantastic! There's the Picture Book Picnic and an Audience with Darren Shan, that master of horror, himself. The Monster Book Lunch will return with Cathy Cassidy, the reigning Queen of Teen, Judi Curtin, Sarah Webb, Conor Kostick, John Newman... and lots more authors. There's the Monster Book Quiz. And Mr. Skulduggery himself, the amazing and amusing Derek Landy will be reading and signing books. (The new Skulduggery Pleasant installment is out on 1st September!) There's far too much for me to list here. So here's the link. Check it out for yourselves, and be sure to book your tickets NOW!
