The gods are rubbing their hands and giggling with wicked delight.
Only days after publicly revealing my fear of ever again sharing a signing table with Morris Gleitzman, they’ve conspired to put us on the same bill for this year’s Word Play at the Brisbane Writers Festival.
For those who missed it the first time, Morris has queues that extend to the outer reaches of the galaxy, while I try to attract passing interest by balancing a pen on the end of my nose, toppling backwards out of a chair, and knocking myself unconscious.
If you’d like to see me knock myself out for Grades 6-9, click here and here to book for my sessions (1 and 2 Sept). Book now and ker-ching! you’ll get an early bird discount (available to June 25 or while stocks last. )
Seriously, Word Play at BWF is made of awesome for kids and lovers of kids’ literature. Click here for everything you need to know about Word Play, and here for the full program of fabulous authors and illustrators.
