BOOK FESTIVAL 2017

IN THERAPY BY SUSIE ORBACH

Susie Orbach was very interesting to listen to, the questions were all answered in-depth.  I got her book so will be reading and reviewing at a later date.  It was a shame there was not more time as these one hour slots are not really long enough to really get into a discussion.  I am hoping the book will pick up on a lot of the questions that were in the write-up about this session.

THE GENDER GAMES BY JUNO DAWSON

Myself and Sheila went to the event hosted by Lennox again,  she really is one of the best hosts of the festival.

Juno was a lovely person and so very honest about everything

and it really made you sit up and realise all the struggles and just plain not knowing what she was from an early age.  I had a quick glance through the book that I will read after Sheila, Juno was an award-winning author before she became Juno who she is now. The many books she has written have all been extremely well received and I am sure she will go on to write many more.

EDITING WORKSHOP BY ANDY MILLER

My last event was Andy Miller’s and as soon as I walked in the room we both recognised one another from last year, he did change the session a bit but it is all good learning.

He is very good at getting people to participate and is full of information that we just carry on gleaning out of him. This year he has read 141 books and I thought I was doing good on 54!

That was the end of the book festival for me this year, I have thoroughly enjoyed it and met some new lovely people.  I think this gets better every year and am already looking forward to next years.

In February Julie Wassmer has invited me over to the Faversham festival so that is something to look forward to in the new year.

I  hope you have all enjoyed these events along with me. Have a wonderful Sunday everyone.
