Meeting an author
The highlight of I's half-term was meeting her favourite author, Jacqueline Wilson, at the close of Bookfest in Birmingham. She gave I hope as she told the children when she was a little girl she would start stories and never finish them. She was a really good speaker and I would recommend hearing her if you have any young fans. I was lucky enough to get a book signed by her. I think I was right in not taking any of the others - I am not sure they could have sat and listened for an hour, nor waited for an hour and a half for a book to be signed! They were quite happy pottering at my parent's.
